Cozy Dell Trail - Los Padres National Forest
Trail Distance 1.88 Miles

The trailhead is located 3.3 miles north of Ojai and .1 mile south of Friends' Ranch Packing House. Do not park in the parking lot of the packing house.  The trail ends at Cozy Dell Creek, where it ties into the Foothill Trail and Cozy Dell Road. From this junction, a loop can be made by following the Foothill Trail and then continuing back along the Ojai Fuel Break Road.

There are no camps or water along the way. Along this trail, large oak trees provide plenty of shade and there are spectacular views of the Ojai Valley.
