Good trail for beginners. Paved trail, kinda steep going up but not hard at all. We took the dogs with us on this one and they had no problems. You don’t need hiking boot for this trail. Great views. FYI: parking is at the park south of the trail head.

usually very quiet and relaxing.

came out with the kids. There wasn't much to see. Turns out there was a fire on July 2nd so we turned back around. Hung out at the nature center for a bit. we'll be back next year

would have been a great hike, aside from the fact the whole trail system was scorched. so heads up if you go now, you will feel more like you smoked, then hiked. will try again in the fall

Super easy!

Great for the family no matter what age

Hard part was from 3rd cross down to Crestlawn Memorial then back. Otherwise, a nice moderate hike.

Too many bugs the end destination is meh and you can just drive to. There was poop everywhere in sight and where it was not in sight the smell was very much present. Nothing special would not recommend do the steep hill at the botanical garden. We did! Beautiful scenery views and still a workout.

Great hike with many different possible routes. Good place to find reptiles, I've seen a few rattlesnakes off the trail. One of my favorite hikes in Riverside

Took me about an hour and a half to complete .. don’t think it should be considered “hard” definitely on the moderate side! Was a good hike with a beautiful view of the neighborhood.

I do not recommend this park solely due to the rattlesnake population. Wow

Good trail for beginners!!

It was a great hike but there are too many trails. I found some mountain bike ramps close to the summit which explains all the trails. Trail is not a clear path and loose footing. It is marked as an Easy trail. I feel like it should be changed to moderate. All in all, the trail was great and some great views of both sides of the city at the top.

Haven’t been hiking since the Corps. Saw a snake and booked it. Wasn’t sure if it was a rattler or not because I bounced once it hissed at me. The last quarter mile or so is confusing and the trail kinda disappears so I had to go through dead weeds and god stickers all over so that was annoying
