The Shelf Road Trail to Luci's Trail at the Valley View Preserve in Ojai, California is a difficult 3 mile out-and-back hike up the mountainside with panoramic views along the way.

This hike starts out along shelf access road, which is a state road for fire management. Follow Shelf Access Road east until you reach Luci's Trail.

Luci's Trail is very easy to follow in that it's open, well traveled, and clearly defined; however, it heads uphill and has many switchbacks along the way. The ascent is quite steep and there is little to no shade once you're off the Shelf Access road. This makes for stunning panorama views for almost the entire hike.

Please note that there are several trails in this area many of which connect making for many possible loops.

Dogs are allowed on leash. Biking is also allowed on this trail.
