Box Springs Mountain Reserve Professional Review and Guide
"Hike along an old maintenance road to the summit of Box Springs Mountain, which overlooks the Inland Empire and the big “M” above Moreno Valley. Views extend across Southern California, and on clear days the panoramic view is sublime. Descend along a breathtaking trail that wraps around the mountainside. The Box Springs Mountains dominate the northern skyline above the cities of Riverside and Moreno Valley. Some 1,150 acres of rough and untamed territory have been protected in a spacious and beautiful park and preserve that bears the mountains’ name. Miles of dirt roads and trails dot the landscape, although the park itself is often overlooked and underutilized. Equestrians, mountain bikers, families, and even dogs are all welcome. Best of all, there is no entrance or day-use fee."
--Alleen Riedel, Best Easy Day Hikes: Riverside (Falcon Guides).
The skill level is not Easy ...it's moderate to hard and the elevation is 1100'....very nice trail and much harder than Rubidox mountain
