The path circles Mount Rubidoux featuring a delightful view of the Santa Ana River and Riverside. Historic landmarks include the Peace Tower, which was built in 1925, and a large white cross. The elevation of the trail raises 559 feet from the base of the mountain. Rock outcroppings feature seasonal flowers and cactus and is a popular rock climbing area. The trail is great for strollers and wheelchairs. Gate hours are sunrise to sunset.

A nice paved trail that is 4 miles total. Very crowded but the path is wide. At the top, there is a great panoramic view of Riverside and a great picture spot at a huge Cross. Parking at the park a short walk away from the trail head is the easiest. Will do this again

Very easy hike. A lot of beautiful rock formations, succulent plants and a great overview of the city. The only downside is the parking which is in a residential area. I parked 3-4 blocks down the road where a parking permit was not required. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the trail.

Dog crap everywhere, totally stinks. Might be nice for a easy walk with the dog, but I don't recommend for experienced hikers.

Plenty of shade, away from traffic, many active people, flowers, cactus and trees, dog-friendly, great views of Riverside, high historical value, distance markers along path.

A very fun trail!! Trail is paved, so it makes it an easy one. Took the family here and it was a great time! Good place to take the kids. Great place to take pictures!

This hike has two trails. One for beginner hikers and one for advanced hikers. The beginners trail is actually a nicely paved trail which takes a while longer to reach the top but all in all is a beautiful hike around the whole mountain!
