Length: 2.7 mi • Est. 1 h 21 m
As of May 28, 2020, users have reported that the 10th street entrance is still closed, but there are plenty of other ways up. The parking at the park is a good option. Mt. Rubidoux trail is more of a paved road, but makes a great place for a quick run, a beautiful hike with friends and family, or for taking your dog for a walk. Though it is not a long trail, the amazing views of Riverside make this paved trail a popular place. There is an American Flag and a Cross at the top. Bring sunscreen or a hat. Parking at the trailhead can be tricky to find, and most hikers use nearby parking areas. The trail has some grade but it is great for strollers and wheelchairs.Show more

The Santa Ana River Trail extends from San Bernardino through Orange County. This section goes from Fairmount Park in the City of Riverside to Van Buren Avenue. Well traveled by bicyclists, joggers, and walkers, this section is entirely paved. It is generally well-signed, albeit broken up by the streets around Ryan Bonaminio Park. The route parallels the Santa Ana River Wildlife Area with views of Mt. Rubidoux. It winds through Martha McLean / Anza Narrows Park which marks the area traversed by Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza and his party in 1774. From the park, the river channel becomes a large woodland. The trail continues past Van Buren Avenue to Hidden Valley Nature reserve near Norco.Show more
