We live in a beautiful place! And there’s no better way to enjoy its beauty than from up high. We’ve compiled three of our favorite places for the best views in Riverside. Check it out!


Sycamore Highlands Park

Sycamore Highlands is a neighborhood park with one of the best views in Riverside. There’s a basketball court, a baseball field, tables for picnics, and hiking and biking trails nearby. After enjoying your afternoon, you can hike up the hill a little to watch the sunset and look over the entire valley. It’s also a great spot to watch fireworks on Independence Day! The park is about a 20-minute drive away from Corona Pointe Resort on Fair Isle Drive in Riverside. 


Box Springs Mountain

Box Springs Mountain is a hidden gem located about 35 minutes away from us on Box Springs Mountain Road in Moreno Valley. There are a few steep but short trails for challenging but fun hikes, and there is a great view of the city once you get up there. If you’re lucky, you might see a few wild donkeys!


Skyline Drive Trails

Skyline Drive Trails is great because there are lots of different trails for different ability levels, and all of them lead to a great view! There is parking and a water station, but not a ton of trees, so be sure to wear sun protection. The trailhead is located about 40 minutes away from us on Skyline Drive in Corona.


There you have it: three of the best views in Riverside. So go stretch your legs and enjoy our beautiful city from above! After you experience a few of these must-see views, we’re sure you’ll fall in love with Riverside, California. When you do, consider moving to Corona Pointe.
