  • My young adults love coming here an hiking to the top! Easy Hike and great views! I would love to do the hike but due to an injury I can not.  more »
  • Due to injury we were unable to make the hike to the top and were hoping to drive. It’s a pedestrian-only Park so we were unable to see the view.  more »
  • Fun experience with the family, walking, exercise, interaction with the locals. Great views with historic references along the walk.  more »

  • It's a nice area to stroll, running and biking. Accessible 24 hrs for people who like to go late at night. Some people will say hiking in Mt Rubidoux but I called it more strolling.. a leisure to walk and see the cities 360 degree. Its a 3 miles distance still good for cardio.
  • Love the hike. The main road is fun to jog. The back trails are fun to hike. The Castle, Cross, Rocks, and Flag at the top are always a great spot to relax away from the world... and learn a little history.
  • Overall, this is a great hike. There are two paths to the top. Do not expect a peaceful and quiet hike. Lots of people hike throughout the day. Expect to encounter people young & old, dogs, women with mega strollers, cyclist and an occasional field trip crowd from surrounding schools. Thankfully there is a park nearby with tons of parking. It may get full on the weekends and when it's baseball and softball season.
  • I always enjoy riding my bicycle up to the top. Although it would be nice if the people walking up to the top and back down again would realize that the trail is for everyone on bicycles as well as walking or jogging. The other day ran into a gentleman I'm sorry I didn't run into him I politely told him I was on his left as I passed he felt it was necessary to curse at me and everyone that was with me about being on the trail. Obviously he doesn't understand common courtesy or respect for others. Most of the cyclists I know do understand common courtesy and respect the fact that we share Trails like this all over the city.
  • Hiking trail is not difficult given that its an asphalt trail. There are optional non-asphalt shortcuts that are a little steep. 1. View from the top is great. 2. There are only several trees for shade along the trail, but more when you reach the flag on top. 3. There is a water fountain at the start of the trail. 4. Sometimes there are people giving religious handouts of paper near the start of the trail. Recommended to not accept it. 5. Beware of broken glass and animal droppings while hiking. 6. Dont start hiking at noon (11am-3pm) because of intense heat. 7. Close parking spots would be at curbs.
