For a panoramic view of Riverside, try climbing Mt. Rubidoux! The route up Mt. Rubidoux is a steady, sometimes-paved but mostly sandy incline lined with tall, prickly pear cactus and boulders. A steady gait makes for about an hour round trip. If it’s a clear day, one can see clear into nearby Corona to the west and Moreno Valley to the east. The mountain is the site of the oldest outdoor non-denominational Easter Sunrise service in the United States. Many historic markers and memorials have been placed on the mountain, the most prominent being the cross at the summit dedicated to Father Junípero Serra.
