This is called the Diamond Valley Lake trail right outside Hemet/San Jacinto. I have biked this two track many times to avoid the noise, traffic and smell of biking on streets and highways. It is mostly flat, but since it is 22 miles of mostly gravel surface, it is a nice way to get some exercise, while spending a couple hours in the silence and peace of nature. I love to look at the many wild critter tracks and have caught a glimpse of the critters themselves from time to time. No pets allowed on the trail so all those tracks are wild ones. The flowers in the spring are also beautiful as well as all the ducks and birds year around and the geology is amazing. dvlake.com Have fun!
Perris Lake trail, except Perris is paved.
