Cold and windy today. Incline all the way to the top. We didn’t enjoy the view at the top because of the wind. Good hike overall

Conditions were dry windy sunny lots of loose silt out there. Definitely recommend boots but if your using running shoes you’re taking a moderate chance of falling.

I really liked this trail, but there are no markings so it's possible to get confused on where to go. There is a steep, old mountain bike down hill path and a hiking route. If you stick to the GPS you will be fine, but if you leave it behind just be observant. I'm thinking about putting up a couple signs to help, since I live nearby. There is a warning about rattlesnakes in the area, but not all snakes up there are dangerous. I saw a Rosy Boa that someone killed - those are rodent eaters and not dangerous/poisonous. Please don't kill them or the hills will be overrun with rodents. Then we have to worry about the plague and Hantavirus. You can park at Canterra Park, but that is not where the trailhead for the summit is. The signs at that park will take you somewhere else, you need to head north through the houses to the dirt path in between the houses at the end of the cul-de-sac.

Free parking at cantera park. Arrived at 6am. Walk up to the dead end and trail begins there. Nice steady incline. rocky at times. Summit is like a large pleatau.

This was a really fun trail. Bring water and sunblock as there is no shade throughout the trail. It has overgrown areas but you can still follow the trail and reach the top. There area few different spots where you reach a fork that has different ways to go as long as you follow the map and GPS on here you'll be good. I was able to complete the hike in an hour and a half. 1hr up and half an hour down. I was moving pretty quickly up and took a few breaks for water. I didn't stop at all coming back down hill. My phone died half way up the trail so that played a factor in me moving quickly.

Started this around 2:00 this afternoon, back down by 4:00. Lots of overgrown patches but nothing major where you can’t see the actual trail. View from the top was cool considering this isn’t some ultra-high peak. Only snake I spotted was at the trail head and it was only a couple sections of what was left of it. Definitely no shade the whole way. Didn’t see any other hikers or mountain bikers the entire time. Overall it was pretty easy, oh and a lot of neat bugs / lizards to see. *Not sure how the residents feel about parking in front of their houses so I parked a block away at Cantera Park*

So decided to go on this hike today, travelled from Orange County.. when we reached there, just by looking at the condition of trail, it looked inaccessible. There was a dead rattler at the begin of the trail. We still decided to continue . After walking for .5 miles ( through overly grown bushes) we couldn’t find the actual trail.. we have lived in West Texas and know one thing for sure, If you see lots of holes in the ground, if the road below your feet is covered with bushes your waist high, NEVER TAKE CHANCES.. we turned around and drove back home.. should have seen the conditions before!

I loved this trail, it is a tad over grown in some places but I wore thick leggings, wool socks, and hiking shoes and it didn’t bother me as much. Definitely can tell it is used for mountain biking too. There are some off trails to hike or to mountain bike as well. This trail had all different terrain, some parts smooth rock, other times just dirt, some sandy, and then some parts dirt and rocks. This is not for beginners and have to put the work in at some parts. It is a moderate trail to get your heart going. I only did half the trail wanted to finish but came later than expected. It was breezy and sunny, about 70 degrees. There are a lot of sunflowers, and other pretty foliage(small but white, purple, yellowish). There are plenty of butterflies, bees, dragonflies, stink bugs, caterpillars, birds, and some gnats(not the whole trail). There are great views to take pictures and to look out over the city of Jurupa Valley and the gold course. This is a hike I recommend, bring snacks and water!

Nice trail that's close. Peaceful. Rocky. I'd say it's better easy & moderate. Virtually no one; saw 4 ppl at top that came up a different path & then passed 3 people on my way down.
