Riverside, California Map

This is a steep trail, but it's short. When you get to the road at the top there are a ton of extra opportunities to explore. Going left there are a few trials that go through and around some cool rock formations with stunning views of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel mtn ranges. Going right there are more trails and more excellent views of San Jacinto Peak. I like to run/walk up two trees and then do some more running on the trail systems at the top. Currently there are some overgrown spots, but you can get by with shorts if you don't mind your legs brushing up against some of the grasses that have grown on the side of the trail. The waterfall halfway up is no longer running from what we could tell this past Wednesday.

Very doable, but more realistically an easy-moderate rating! Best to do September-April. There isn't much shade, so it is better to go in the morning. The views from the top are beautiful!!

Good family environment

Great sunset Views!

Beautiful! But if you take a dog, don't forget to pick up it's dog poop!!!

Just a nicer run in the street... next to a man made river. Still nice though.

Super chill hike. Trail is all conrete, some dirt. Pack on that sun block! Little shade, lots of rest spots. Total of 3.52 miles, long way. Easy for the whole family. Busy spot.

Awesome hike! Definitely not for the beginner, the start is a butt kicker! If you can make it to the top of the hill you'll be rewarded with amazing views and some cool photos.
