Mt. Rubidoux - Walk to the Top After Work

  • Dec 13, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

 

 

 

 

 

 

Join us for a nice up and down loop on Mt. Rubidoux - approximately 3-miles with 500-foot elevation gain.

This walk is on a paved road that rises gradually. We will walk up the longer, less steep trail to the right, take a break at the top on the cross side, and then loop back down.

We will start walking promptly at 4:00 p.m so we can get back to our cars before dark.

Rain cancels this hike.

The isolated, 1,337-foot high granite hill towering above the city’s western edge has long been a landmark to travelers and residents alike, ever since the 1880s when Riverside emerged as the quintessential Southern California citrus town. The mountain was named for one of its 19th century owners, wealthy ranchero Louis Robidoux.
