Hiked this trail Sunday 9/30. Love this little trail. We always take it to the road and then turn left heading to the highest peak on the north side. It turns out to be about 4.5 miles round trip and the views worth it.

very steep in some places. Nice hike.

yay

For trail running, this is one of the best I've found near Riverside. First 1.3 miles is near vertical - hard to even get strides in. The rest is a climb but evens out a bit more.

This is definitely not an easy hike. At best, I’d call it moderate due to the incline.
Beautiful vistas and lots of lizards. Highly recommended.

Hiked two trees trail today and then branched off to the north. Great weather and not toobmany people out.

For my first time hiking this trail kicked my ass all the way up the hill. It was a great workout. When you reach the top youll see that there are other trails! Be careful for snakes. Its getting warmer and they like to lay in the trail. First time i went was 4/7/18 and a rattle snake was laying in the middle of the trail.
The second time 4/15/18 and came across a smaller snake also laying in the trail.

A great trek....Took the whole family on this one...youngest 2 years old and she walked the entire thing by herself. Those saying the trail is hard to follow must be beginners...it is very simple. Not confusing at all. Very little to no shade so be careful if you go when it is hot.

Really verticle hike. No shade, but a good workout.

We tried our best to stay on the trail that the app shows. Best we can figure is a fire and rains washed the northern third away. We had a blast forging our own trail down the hill with very loose dirt. Finally came across the "bridge" that crosses the creek and cave.

Good little hike for a quick time out from the city that doesn't have too many people. Although there is recent fire damage, everything is starting to come back to life. I'd hike it again! No fees for parking but the lot is small and I imagine it fills up rather quickly on the weekends.

This was a good hike. We went in February. Looks like pretty hot summer hike though.

Finally made it to the top this time around. It ends at an access road. There is a parking lot and port-o-potty but no water. Once at the top, you can turn around and come back down, or you can continue on to the Edison Trail. Great workout!

way way way harder than easy. this is super tough. not Not not an easy trail to hike or bike. easy rating is very misleading.

starting from Riverside off of blain great trail, I've been doing this hike for years there are a few different ways you can start this hike from Moreno Valley and in Riverside which is a little more challenging

Not really good for mountain biking. Views of the sunset are beautiful and if you’re on foot, I’d still count it a moderate hike. Certainly isn’t flat. But on bikes, to climb from the trail head near UCR you’ve gotta have some serious climbing ability. The steepness alone is one thing. But there are big rocks jutting out of the path making it difficult to maneuver. I’m not a pro and I’m sure it can be done but for the average rider, I’d say stick to hiking on this trail.

upsetting to see it is fire torn.... and just seeing where the fire was at - no way this was caused naturally... anyway, had fun regardless...2nd time around headed out to M mt.

Trail isn’t marked and hard to follow

Just when you think there are no interesting, challenging hikes in your own backyard, you find a hike like this. Box Springs Mountain is 3,083 feet at it's highest peak. Its a fun, steep hike with a true accomplishment of reaching the "M" if you go all be the way to the radio towers.

Nice Sunday hike. Cool spring

This is a tough trail. All uphill, no shade and despite being able to hear the city noise, still relaxing. There were two mini-very tiny waterfalls and a small stream. I recommend this trail for teens and adults not so much for kids.

Beautiful, virtually unknown, trail in Riverside! In the span of a few months, I’ve seen a rattlesnake, couple coyotes and today encountered a bobcat! Still an amazing trail, definitely one to maybe take the headphones out, be vigilant, and enjoy the surroundings! Very little trash and graffiti too! Will always be a favorite!

if you do not know this trail or have the membership to the app do not go on this hike. 3 signs to nowhere. trail is not at all clearly marked, one could easily get lost. so dissapointed
