This trail is difficult to find. It starts from Citrus Avenue in Southridge between Alma and Florence in the South of Fontana. Walk south along the dirt road for about 1/4 mile. Look to the left as you walk and count the cement drainage culverts. Climb the third culvert, it is steep, but short. Turn right at the top of the culvert on to a foot trail. Follow this trail for the about next mile and a quarter.
This a Backcountry area in the Jurupa Hills. The trail is 2.5 miles round-trip and crosses the Riverside / San Bernardino County border. Elevation gain is 460 feet, enough for some nice views. The majority of the trail hugs the hills and climbs steadily into the hills through a Kangaroo Rat reserve. I have seen Kangaroo Rats at night using a headlamp along the trail. Most commonly, I see rabbits, squirrels, lizards coyotes in the early morning, hawks and all manner of birds. WARNING! If you hike in the heat of the day, you may encounter rattle snakes. Mornings are best or cool days. The last 400 yards of the trail climb steeply to a flat hilltop with surprisingly nice views of Riverside County to the South and San Bernardino County to the Northwest. You can also see the less accessible side of Jurupa Mountain to the Northeast.
