Mount Rubidoux Trail and Memorial Park

Two Trees Trail
For a little more strenuous but still fairly short hike, try the 3-mile Two Trees Trail in Box Springs Park near UCR. The elevation gain is 1200 feet, so it’s a good idea to leave an hour and a half to two hours to complete the hike. Keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife like lizards, red-tailed hawks, and coyotes. Watch for rattlesnakes on the trail. For directions to the trailhead, see the following websites.
