No Trace of the Orange Trace
updated: Nov 29, 2012, 7:39 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

The scattered oranges that lay along the Ojai-Ventura bike path are gone. The "Orange Trace" signs that described the sculpture is still there, but the scattered oranges are not. It looks like a professional removal job rather than vandalism.

Does anybody have information about their removal. I hope it's just a face lift because they were beautiful landmark along the trail.

I remember that art installation! Hope it hasn't been removed in a vandalistic way.

The oranges were near the 2 mile marker from the beach on the Ventura/Ojai Bike Trail. They may have been removed for their scrap value. The history of the installation is available at this site:

Unfortunately during these tough financial times we won't see them replaced any time soon.

If they were metal, they were stolen. Contact your state legislators. Art, heritage, and infrastructure is being pillaged by metal thieves. The laws need to be WAY strengthened for businesses that buy scrap metal. It's easy money for all parties involved. Google metal theft to see the extent of the problem.

For we Santa Barbarans who have never been on the Ventura/Ojai bikepath, could someone please explain what we're talking about??

The Ventura Ojai bike path is an old railroad route. It has a easy uphill grade for bicyclists and is a very beautiful ride. They recently installed a new bridge over the river that is massive - the horses even use it.

@712: No, no, NO! That's not what I meant. What about all these spilled oranges on the bikepath? I'd think they'd be a traffic hazard. Why are people so concerned about this? Oranges are a dime a dozen in Ojai. I'd think you all would be happy that they're sweeping them up from the bikepath. Good grief, if someone kept the bikeways clean in Santa Barbara it would be a miracle.

If you follow the link above you will see that they weren't real oranges. It was a sculpture. I will report it to the police today.
