The trail was overall decent, i didn't like that there was no shade what's so ever anywhere on this trail. For me that was the only down side. Take lots of water!

If your looking for a steep incline and ready to work your glutes this is the hike for you. The first half mile is challenging but well worth it once you at the top.

It's a hard hike. Real steep. Definitely not for beginners. Good workout. Don't go when it's too sunny out, sun will beat you.

This is a great trail, you don't have to go the full 5.2. I did a 2 mile hike with my dog today and it took me around 1 hour as most of it's up hill and steep coming back down. Would suggest only people that have moderate experience for this trail.

Great way to work on your cardio, will get your heart pumping haha I strongly suggest to visit early in the morning because it will get super hot and there's no shade.

This is no longer called Golden Park. It is now called Doty-Trust Park, in honor of two fallen police officers for the City of Riverside. The park is beautiful and well landscaped. The walk is partly through a neighborhood and partly through the park. It has incredibly beautiful vistas of the city of Riverside because it's on the side of a hill. The area is semiarid and the undeveloped hills in the neighborhood are strewn with very large boulders, a few remaining hoodoos, and California coastal chaparral.
