Mount Rubidoux Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This family-, bike-, and dog-friendly trail goes up through a beautiful wilderness park in the heart of the city of Riverside. The hike offers the choice of a longer, steadier climb or a shorter but steeper trip. The entire region can be surveyed from the top, which is adorned with a lovely castlelike tower and flag. The Mount Rubidoux Trail is a fantastic getaway right within the Riverside city limits. The trail itself is an old road that has been locked and gated and made accessible only to pedestrians and bicyclists. The road contours around the prominent hillside and wraps the summit in a large loop. Hikers can enjoy a quick and steep 1.25-mile outing to the summit or follow the more gradual 2.25-mile ascent to the top."
