Nice trail to walk and hike. Hidden river was amazing place to take a break. Many Coyotes in the area but pretty fun trail for bicycling

I liked this trail hike, there are a lot of trails going all over these little hills. So I just picked one and walked. I found the creek, it was a bit steep and rocky to get down to, but very nice down there. I loved how easy it is to find and park. All the different routes made it more interesting. I believe the sign said there’s 25 miles worth of trail.

Great rolling hills and constant elevation changes. Watch for snakes spring through fall.

Nice trail. Lots of trails to choose from, depending how far you want to go. We went about noon on a Sunday and there were very little people on the trail. There is no shade, so as the temperature gets warmer either go first thing in the morning or around sunset.

This is a easy to tough hike. You can choose many trails to make it easy or hard. Some trails dead end. If your not on a time schedule, enjoy the journey. If so stay on the main trail which is pretty wide. I hiked this trail and did the loop of 4.3 miles. Saw a totally of 3 other individuals the hold hike. It was a great day!

This one of my favorite "quick hikes"- There are small waterfalls along the way along with great views of downtown Riverside, Mt Rubidoux, Canyon Crest Golf course, etc. There is a nature center at the main entrance along with a variety of paths to choose from. Its located very close to the Canyon Crest Towne Center. Watch out for Rattlesnakes , other than that it's a very safe place to hike for any skill level.

A kid in a security truck spied on us the whole way and then yelled at us, said she would call the cops on us. Don't think she really knew what her job was. I told her to go ahead and call and then she continued to spy but didn't approach is again.

My teen-aged daughter and I did this hike this morning and quite enjoyed ourselves. We encountered five solo mountain bikers and one hiker. The terrain was dry but has patches of green due to recent rains. I imagine this will be a beautiful place in a month with a couple of more rains. We did not see any wildlife except some birds, a pair of cranes being some of them. It was quite a peaceful hike, which was the perfect place for mother-daughter time.

While the physical landscape of the park is dry and very brown, the trails meet all the practicalities for trail running. The paths are wide enough to maneuver around mountain bikers and walkers. Also, there are great aerial views of the city and nearby mountains.

I accessed the trails at an entrance behind Sycamore Highlands Park. There is street parking and water fountains there.
