This trail is a good workout. It’s steep. Not enough to where you’ll be rock climbing but enough to where your legs are doing all the work. We wore running shoes but were wishing we had our hiking boots. We went around 7:30am with an overcast morning and it was perfect. I’d recommend going earlier if it’s clear skies.

Great hike not many people. Some steep parts but seen people with kids. Most of the trail has no shade so go early or when there is overcast. I liked it. Will definitely go again.

Get your buns ready, it’s definitely going to make them burn! Loved every minute of it though. The only thing I would change is the time of day I went but that’s my own fault! It’s probably amazing in the cooler morning hours!

Solid trail! Not much shade but perfect for a short morning walk. Look for the bunnies!

Very nice trail! Saw one snake just off the trail. A few bunny’s and lizards. There is no bathroom at the start but once you reach the end they have a porta-potty and trash cans. You can see all of beautiful downtown riverside from this trail.. even spotted the Mt Rubidoux cross. The path is obvious, narrow at times but clear. Bring water

Very nice trail! I recommend starting from the bottom of the trail and working your way uphill to the end. You get more scenery this way and when walking back down to your car after reaching the end, the downhill makes it a lot easier plus the view is breathtaking. I would take this path again. Not too rocky, and there are many spots to rest and take photos. The paths were nice.

Overall nice trail. Very rocky and steep on the way back down. Sign does not mention snakes but we saw two eating lizards on the way back so be mindful if you have dogs or children.

Great quick elevation hike but be aware of rattlesnakes! I almost stepped on a 6 foot red diamond!

Did this hike on a crystal clear day so the views were fantastic! Big bear, San Gorgonio, San Jacinto we’re all snow covered from the storm a few days ago. Lots of wild burro dung so watch your step. Wear good shoes of you’re finishing in the top boulder area. I was slipping on the way down with running shoes.

Moderate (wouldn't call it hard or unpleasant unless you have the wrong shoes/attitude) with some very light scramble. Amazing boulder-strewn geography all around you. This is a burro trail more than a human one so expect dung piles (you're in a wildlife preserve.) If you get there early enough you can see the burro herds before they move to their daytime hideouts. It ends a little anticlimactically at BSM rd, but that was ok since I was using it as a connector trail anyway.

Went for a night hike, trail is covered in poop, but really nice moderate trail with lots to see and amazing views (from what I could see) , lotsa critters running around tonight which made me almost as uncomfortable as the weirdos at the end of the trail flashing lights at me and whistling and revving their engines, maybe it’s a high schooler party spot? Either way I want to come back in the daytime and check out the sweet giant rock with a hole in it!

This trail is not moderate I see it as more of an advanced hike. The majority of the hike we did was a very steep uphill climb and this is coming someone that works out regularly. There is dog poop everywhere and no maker’s so you really don’t know where it ends. I don’t recommend this trail

This was a beautiful trail but it got burned recently and so much of the landscape now has burning scars. It has a funky smell throughout the whole way.
