Shelf is a very popular and well-known hike in Ojai. Its main trail is very wide, well maintained, and can be accessed from both ends. Round trip is 3.5 miles, with few changes in elevation. Many people run this trail, or take their dogs here for an evening stroll.
Recently many trails off the main path have been created, so there are many trails to explore. The pictures here show one of these off-shoot trails that I recently did with Paige and CJ. The views from all trails offer great panoramic views of Ojai Valley and the surrounding mountains.
