The Jurupa Mountains are a mountain range in northwestern Riverside County, California, United States. The northern flanks of the range descend into neighboring San Bernardino County.[1] The mountains draw their name from the Rancho Jurupa, an 1838 Mexican land grant, and one of the earliest permanent settlements in the area.
