Description Suggest change

The Inland Empire of western Riverside and San Bernardino Counties is less developed than the coastal part of the Greater Los Angeles area to its west. It has a transitional climate and geography that is dryer than the coastal plain, but less harsh than the true desert across San Gorgonio Pass to the east.

Mountain ranges form its physical boundaries: the Santa Ana Mountains to the west, San Bernardino Mountains on the north, and San Jacinto Mountains to the south.

Climbing areas here are often on foothills of the mountains surrounding it, and include the Big Rock Area, Mount Rubidoux, and the Riverside Quarry.
