Mt. Rubidoux and Parks

  • Mt. Rubidoux will be re-opening on Friday, May 22 at the Glenwood Drive entrance. The 9th Street entrance will remain closed due to construction. The paved paths from the entrances will be painted with a dashed line in the center with directional arrows on each side of the lane from the gate entrances. Once visitors get to a “crossroads” at the base of the mountain, they will be required to walk in the same direction up and down the mountain to prevent people from passing each other on the trail and coming in close contact with one another. If visitors disregard the rules designed to keep them safe, the trails on Mt. Rubidoux could be closed again. The City Council will hear an update on June 16. Help us keep Mt. Rubidoux open by following all rules.
