I hiked a little over a mile yesterday, the trail was clean and beautiful. I saw a hawk, lizards, birds and three wild hare. I'd say the trail is more moderate than easy, I gained about 800 feet in elevation in the mile that I hiked. The trail is dog friendly, my tiny terrier loved it. Bring plenty of water for this hike, there are a few shaded spots to rest in but you are mostly exposed.

Nice, easy trail to hike, my 6 year old son was able to do it. View is amazing

This trail has an ascend straight up with few level offs for a break in the hike. Great for a strenuous workout hike

I hiked this trail for the first time and really enjoyed it. Beautiful views and no traffic. I only hiked 1.5 miles up because it was late in the evening and got a good workout. Easy to find with the directions on the app.
If you're looking for a quick, nearby getaway, then this place is for you! This park suited our needs for a quick, 2 hour hike. There are some nice views of Riverside and surrounding cities in the area. However, if you have more time, then I would suggest going to the San Bernardino National Forest or Joshua tree National Park not too far from Box Springs Mountain Park.
I hike this multiple times a week an love it. Great glades to stop and catch your breath. Can do a loop to the glades or all the way up to the road. For a shady return, take the path on the right where you see a big Star Wars looking boulder across the way (must watch for the path since there is no carin).
