Description

The Jacinto Reyes Scenic Byway offers a rich change of pace from Pacific Coast scenery. Just a few hours from L.A., this route cuts through the arid interior of the Cuyama and San Joaquin Valleys, winding from the valley floor to summits over 5,000 feet, a good way to get a glimpse of coastal California's "other side".

The Jacinto Reyes Scenic Byway follows HWY 33 the entire way. Start in Ojai, 15 miles north of Ventura, and head north just over the Santa Barbra County line; the end of the byway is the junction with HWY 166.

There is a lot to see and do en route in terms of outdoor activity. Dry Lakes Ridge Botanical Area and the Piedra Blanca Rock Formations are both good spots to stretch out and relax with natural attractions for the effort. Much of the route passes through Los Padres National Forest, offering easy access to hiking and mountain biking routes. Rose Valley Recreation Area is also nearby and similarly boasts miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails as well as camping.
