Don't go between noon and 5 pm in the summer, it's too hot. It gets crazy busy right before sunset. Beautiful views, 2 different paths, one steeper but shorter but still not a difficult climb.

This is nice hike, I recommend going early in their morning before the sun it’s strong. The trail is paved and there is very clean.

This climb will be easy for people used to walking elevations because it is paved all the way up. There are two paved routes around Mr. Rubidoux which converge at the bottom. The view at the top is beautiful. You can see downtown Riverside on...More

Amazing park. Close to America’s Best Value Inn. Got my morning walk and run. Great views of the city. Very pleasing. My favorite hotel and mountain jog in the same town.

Great place to run uphill. Great view of the valley. You find lots of people jogging or walking as early as 5am.

It is a couple of miles uphill, but you can walk at your own pace with friends, family or your dog. I suggest you go before 10am on hot days and take water for yourself and dogs. Most of the walk is paved and there...More

There are 2 entrances and one has parking. You can't park on the streets of the other one unless you have a handicap plaque. Could not make it to the top, but got far enough to get a glimpse of the great view.

There are two entries. One is on 9th Street and the other is on Glenwood Drive. Best parking is at Ryan Bonaminio Park. Walk up Glenwood to entry.

There is the paved road and then there are paved paths and some paths that are not paved. The paved road is used at the 4th of July to get fireworks and firetrucks up the hill.

Yes, it is open to the public everyday, every holiday. I walk it very often. Dogs allowed (on leash) and there is also a park at the bottom of the hill to park. Very nice area and safe as well. I live in the area.
