One such spot that has an abundance of fun things to do is Sycamore Canyon Wilderness Park located in Riverside.
The trail system at the 1,500-acre sprawling park offers views of the city and opportunities to watch local wildlife such as coyotes, rabbits, and a variety of birds. Lucky folks may even catch a glimpse of a another notable creature found at the park, the kangaroo rat.
