Mountain Biking Vail Lake Resort

Cool trail system right outside of Temecula. Home to the 12 hours of Temecula and several enduro races. Huge gravel road climb around the single track that lets you choose between several single track or ridgeline decents. Look for the vail lake RV resort and its inside at the end

    I rode there on a Friday morning and I only saw 2 other riders (which was nice). I didn't mind the $5 entry fee at all, as there are a lot of trails there.

    In general the trails were nice and there are lots of intermediate trails to ride. Some trails were rutted quite a bit and could use some work.

    My only feedback is - it would be really nice to have some signs at the summit tops labeling or classifying the trails. The map is pretty much useless since there is no easy way to read it (info on the trail is on the back of the map).

    Fun riding.

    $5 per rider. Ok place to spend a couple hours. Just ups and downs on DG hills, trails are not marked in any way. The jump line has not been maintained and the pump track is just destroyed. No shade on the trails so don't go when it's hot.

    Was not worth the money. Trails should be marked if your paying for it. Also it was like riding at the beach. Sand at every turn bogging you down.

    Fun roller coaster style trail. Not too technical, but still fun.

    Really great riding! Technical rock sections, jump sections, pump track, flowy sections this place is incredibly rad. FYI to park in vail resort it's $5.00 cash only. 100% worth it.

    The trails at Vail Lake offer something for just about every type of mountain bike riding. From easy to some very fun flowing trails to jumps and very challenging downhill.

    I only had time for a couple trails. Loved what I rode. Will definitely come back with fresher legs!
