Sycamore Canyon Wilderness Park is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts in the Riverside region. A network of trails crisscross and intersect, enabling the creation of multiple routes/ trails of varying lengths. Three park entrances offer easy access to the undeveloped landscape. Located between Riverside and Moreno Valley at the junction of Highway 60 and I-215, Sycamore Canyon is a beautiful, untamed nature reserve. The 1,550-acre park is a prime location for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. More than 12 miles of trails cross the rugged, chaparral-covered landscape, providing a quick getaway from the urban atmosphere of Riverside proper. The park is open from thirty minutes after sunrise until thirty minutes before sunset, but the best time for a stroll is early morning or later in the evening, especially when the day is hot.
