Always a classic, used to do this every Friday night with a group of friends. The springtime is especially beautiful around Rubidoux, but anytime of year is good so long as you can withstand the heat in the summer. Don’t expect to escape from society on this hike, the trails are usually rather busy. Do-able for every level of hiker. Rubidoux will always have a special place in my heart

Nice views. Kid friendly. Doesn’t take long to do full circumference

Dog friendly. Was a great hike. With all the trails you can make it as hard or as easy as you want. Would be great if you liked biking

Awesome, easy trail with a couple ways to get up and down. Perfect during overcast-type weather. There’s benches and hay bales to sit on should you get tired. A nice beginner’s hike. I’ve been recording my time on the Nike app and trying to finish the hike faster each time I go. It takes a little under an hour to go up and down the mountain at a walking pace with no stops taking the long route.

I come here about 3 times a week to run. It's a beautiful local trail and is good for anyone who just wants to get out and take a nice quick hike. It can be steep and moderate hike for beginners, depending on which way you take. At the base of the mountain if you go left it's the steeper but faster route, the right is a gentle incline but takes twice as long to get to the top. Views are great, even on cloudy days. Paved roads are great for strollers and its good for dogs. It is heavily trafficked but early afternoon to about 5pm it's not terribly bad. Took off a star because it can get littered at times with trash/dog poop.

It was fun even in the rain.

Easy and fun. The kids love going off the trail and climbing rocks in between the switchbacks. Today was cloudy and cool so not as packed as when we went last.

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

Busy trail but beautiful views on both sides of the hill and at the top.

Highly recommend this hike! Easy enough it took us around 1.75 hrs to hike the 4.1 mile loop. Hidden gem

nice for beginners and bikers. watch out for snakes thou.

Beautiful day for a family “hike”. Watch your steps for dog poop. People should be more mindful about cleaning up after their furry friends. Poop bags were provided so there’s no excuse. Enjoy and pick up after yourself and your kids.

Beautiful views, but a bit difficult to locate the main hiking trail. Added an additional mile or two in doing so. However, great experience and would definitely come again!

The last part of the trail to return to the parking lot was pretty much too slippery and steep, so I had to take an alternate path. It’s nice that the area is becoming greener again.
