This list is just to keep track of all the minor peaks located throughout the Inland Empire (Lower areas of Riveside and San Beranrdino County, Souther California) for all the minor peaks located throughout the Inland Empire. I noticed people making pages for some of these different peaks but many of them don't get noticed unless they are attached to a main page.
The boundaries for this list is the San Bernardino Mountains, the San Jacinto Mountains, Palomar Mountain, the Santa Ana Mountains. Another one of the boundaries if from the end of the Santa Ana Mountains all the way over to the San Bernardino Mountains. These boundaries from a large perimeter forming what is often called "The Inland Empire".
Many low elevation peaks lie in this area. The majority of these peaks are very rocky. By rocky I mean with lots of boulder fields and slabs of rock. Unlike the Santa Ana Mountains, all of these peaks are free from chaparral and just consist of bunch grass mixed with large boulders.

When to Go
The best time to hike/climb is in the fall, winter, and spring. You want to try to avoid the summer because the temperature often reaches 100+ degrees. Also, summer is when rattlesnakes are most active in the Inland Empire. However, it warmer periods, expect to see snakes throughout this area. In warm spells, I have seen them out in Feburary.
