“Nice views of the valley”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

Once you have left the last houses behind you it becomes more interesting ... nice views ... especially if you continue to the ridge or top!

“A pleasant hike with good views of the Ojai valley.”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

If the weather permits and visibility is good this trail can make a very pleasant day. The trailis signed properly and is maintained in good condition. Many ggod spots of the Ojai valley and in some spots views of the ocean.

“Good hike and views on Pratt Trail, Ojai, CA”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

The Pratt Trail leads to the Nordhoff Ridge above Ojai, CA. I hiked from the trailhead, just off Signal Street, and back on a clear, cool February morning. The Forest Service rates the trail moderate to strenuous; I'd rate it strenuous on the way up because of the elevation gain and moderate on the down trip. I'ts an eight-mile round trip from the trailhead; ten if you add a trip down Nordhoff Ridge to the old fire tower atop Nordhoff Peak. A hiker can mix this trail with the Gridley Trail that provides a longer, less testing ascent, but I recommend coming back on the Pratt because of the views of the Ojai Valley, coastal mountains, and the Channel Islands. The trail is in good shape, but I recommend being aware of mountain bike riders. Bring your own water, and a layer or two because it can be windy on the Ridge.
