Mt. Rubidoux...a favorite! LOTS of options to get to the top. We like to take the trail that starts on the Santa Ana River side near the Dog Park.

I wouldn’t say this is an easy hike, it’s more moderate. There are two paths you can choose from, one easier path and the other is a little harder to do.

Bring lots of water!! There is a filtered water refill station at the start of the hike.

Would be an awesome hike if it wasn’t paved all the way to the top. There’s a few dirt trails on the right side of the mountain. Probably 500+ people on this little hill they call a mountain. If you’re looking for a nature hike you’re not going to find it here. A great little run though for the city folk.

Quick and easy hike with a scenic view

Love spending family time here with my adult kids, it’s something we all enjoy.

This is a bigger city downtown hike that is still fun to this day. The disadvantage is there are a lot of people, the advantage is there are "a lot of people". This is Southern California as it is, in it's full glory such as it is, and won't change for a long time to come. Like it or leave it! There were maybe 1000 people on the trail. Various ages, fitness levels, dogs, strollers, runners, few bikes (not great for biker's), and the quintessential Southern California blend of folks. There were very fun and scenic encounters. Still love this hike/walk to this day - the already big parking area was already packed - needs to be bigger. Very scenic - views, history, and the American blend of culture.

Nice simple hike with the family in the middle of a city. Good views the entire way. Even my 90 year old grandmaother likes this one.

Today was my first time there and I absolutely love it...

have been going for years love it. it's pave so great for running. city view is amazing

You can take the paved road all the way up the mountain or you could start at the dog park and take the dirt path up halfway. The dirt path is a much harder, true hike that is quiet but it eventually lands you on the paved road. It smelled like dog poop and urine in a few areas and it is heavily trafficed by pedestrians, strollers and bicycles.

PARKING:
lots of parking availability. whether street or lot located at the park right by the trail head

HIKE:
pretty easy with gentle inclines and declines. lots of landmarks with history explained on plaques. the only thing i would say that would cause an introvert like myself to have any gripes on this hike is the amount of traffic! there's so many people and their pets on this hike. i had to dodge so many strollers and crazy but adorable dogs and their POOP! that's the one thing, if you're going to be a pet owner, PLEASE PICK UP AFTER YOUR PET!!!

other than that, i'd say this is a very nice hike with amazing elevated views of the city below and cool landmarks.

Great workout. Too crowded and noisy. People play music loudly instead of keeping it at a personal level. Not everyone picks up after their dogs. People sit on the cross base and hang out, not giving a chance for other people to touch it or get close enough to enjoy the view. Bridge area smelled strongly of urine. Would be nice to have a restroom up there for people to use. Nice to see families hiking together.
