it was great! this one us one of my favorite trail it takes my breath away (if you take the difficult path)
Beautiful! Super nice hike. Should be rated at moderate though. Lots of rocks on the trails, which made for a better workout. Not to many other hikers. I went on a Wednesday in January.
This was a great trail area for all skill levels.
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.
So much graffiti!!!!! I was not impressed at all. People ruin everything. Won't be going back...
Hiked to 2 trees and back. Trail is very well maintained. A few steep grades makes this hike a great work out. Trail has a couple of well placed shaded areas to catch your breath.
Beautiful views!!!!! Great place to just hangout, do yoga, smoke weed and relax!!!
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.
liked it. great hike. would do again
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).
There was some interesting holes in some of the rocks. Unfortunately they trails are not very well marked and a quick loop hike took almost 3 hours. There is also lots of tagging in a large section of it.
