on Two Tree's Trail

5 days ago

I do this trail almost weekly. It's a nice way to get the blood flowing at the start of the day, and give a bit of elevational perspective on the town of Riverside.
HOWEVER, as of last night (8/14/2017), the trail caught fire, so it might not be safe to hike for a while

Easy, casual hike with paved roads. Relatively packed for a hike, but not uncomfortably packed. View at the top is pretty great especially during sunset and at night. Quality hike

Good trail all

Nice place to hike not a very long drive view is ironic

I give it a five stars. Love to come hike this mountain. Great workout.

Yes there is a fence now. According to a PE article it's "temporary" however it's been there over a year now. Today was my first time, and the way I got around the tracks was by going all the way up Blaine St til you hit Belevedere. There will be a sign for Box Springs Mountain, and you can park in the dirt lot to the left. I walked straight down the gravel path until the sign that said "Private" this or that , to my right was a red gate with a trailhead and I took that trailhead past the house with the security camera sign and horses in the back. Got lost a couple of times trying to take the steep trails from there, so on my way back down I realized it's easier to walk alongside the train tracks (this is a weekend so no metrolink was running, or wasn't when I was there, still be careful!) . I followed the red marked path that the AllTrails app has posted for this on the page map, but at the very very end it took me to the right when I should've stayed left. Eventually after a lot of cussing, climbing, sweating, & breathing heavy I found the C! It lies low and its made of concrete so if you aren't looking up or paying attention its easy to get frustrated and wonder wtf is going on. I would highly recommend lots of water,maybe a snack, shoes with good grip, and a hiking stick as well as a hiking partner! This hike is HARD, but it's a great workout for sure.

Side note: I realized at the end of Big Springs Dr , there's a fence up with a green cloth but behind it is a runoff tunnel for the creek bed. I didn't try that way, but could see others have walked under the tunnel to access the trail.
