  • It has been very difficult to come to the mountain to run. While I understand the need for parking outside of your own home, there doesn’t seem to be a clear alternative. I have thought of parking at the park but don’t know if my car is safe…The signs posted are a little confusing to me. I go once a month now and pray that I parked on the correct side of the street. Attention Riverside Residents, us out of towners spend money in your city before we go home.
