Not too bad for a shorter hike.
Good 30-50 minute hike depending ding how many rest you take. Very satisfying reaching the too and looking at the setting sun on a good day
Great place for the family
It's a challenging work out but if you do it once a week you get used to the steep incline the only thing that really sucks is going down. The sand is really grainy and loose, it's best if you havd some sticks to prevent you from sliding down. No shade. Bring lots of water and a hat.
Directions are not correct, you have to park at Jurupa Park on Jurupa/Sierra. The trail has steep elevations and is pretty unkept but the view is worth it.
Its a boring hot trail. That is until you decide to to cross the valley from west to east. Uncertain of how long it may take to reach the peak from lack of a good vantage point. Completing it is satisfying.
Can be a challenge and a lot more fun if done right.
Just did this trail today! Its not as bad as it seems. Sure there is a lot of graffiti but overall the view is nice. It took me about 2 hours to do this trail but i did take my time and stopped quite a bit to take pictures and for my GF to catch her breath haha. Great beginners hike.
Almost nothing about this overview is correct. The real Jurupa Hills North Trail is slightly less than 1.5 miles long and climbs around 1,300 feet in total elevation. The trail is not advisable for bikes because of the severe steepness unless you are an experienced downhill mountain biker.
The first half the trail isn't kept in very high quality. Many of the large natural rocks on the trail have been covered in graffiti and the water drains down the trails creating some massive ruts, but once you get past all of that the trail really gets better and better ending in a great 360 degree panorama of the entire valley. I personally enjoy this trail because of the great view and exorcise potential, but the trail itself isn't great quality.
There's a nice park at the trailhead, with a miniature water park section to cool off with water slides. The park has a lot of shade and the lawn are well maintained. Unfortunately the trail are not. None of the trails have any signage, so finding the starting point is confusing. You'll really have to go to Google Earth to see how to find that actual trail. When you've discovered the trail you'll be disappointed again to see the vandalism that have occurred and sustained as a reminder of another trail of shame with the graffiti that has been done on the natural boulders. The views are okay, not really awesome because of the city grid and Fontana is another big city. The idea behind hiking is to get away from the City. Anyway, the mountain views are not too bad on the East. This place requires no fee to hike or park. There's no trashcans, benches, drinking fountains on this trail. You'll find all that at the park adjacent.
easy place to hike great area to let your dog roam off the leash not much people around.
good steep paths around third trial for getting some cardio in
Not much of a trail, but great just for a quick walk or if you want to get some exercise you can run the hills. Not really a mountain bike trail... too short. Also the directions on here are not correct... unless I was in the completely run place.. you can park at Jurupa Park and start the trail there. Its not a "hike" its a stroll through the park, but Im glad its there! Not much is here in Fontana.
