One of the trails at Riverside, open all year to all skill level. It's the trail up to the Big "C" on the mountain.

An intensive hike with an extreme incline, but it gets you to a great view fast! It's definitely worth the hike, especially if you're a student attending UCR

It's really fun if you're up for a challenge. My gory friend & I went off the trail halfway to see the other side of the mountains. It's great.

This is my go to trail when I don't want to travel far. Great workout anytime of the day/night. Definitely take some water, but please pick up after yourself.

Great work out for any level hikers, awesome view of Riverside, UCR campus and Moreno Valley if you keep going past the "C". There's deer and horse trails on the other side.
