With more than 13,000 acres of open space and breathtaking views of surrounding vistas, Diamond Valley Lake has become a prime destination for horse trail enthusiasts. This historic part of the Santa Margarita River Watershed gives nature admirers and equestrians alike a chance to explore the ecologically diverse terrain.
Surrounding Diamond Valley Lake, the 5.9 Mile North Hill trail connects two 5- acre trailheads at the north and northeast end of the lake. The western trailhead offers a picnic area, watering troughs, and available space for horse trailers and additional parking
If you are an early riser, you can try and beat the heat as the park opens 30 minutes after the sun rises. With a small fee of $5, you will be able to have a full day of fun without breaking the bank. For most riders the average trail time is 2 hours, but riding along the north hills overlooking the San Jacinto Valley is a view that could keep you there all day.
Don’t have a horse? Diamond Valley Lake Equestrian Center will allow you to spend time with well-trained, gentle horses for all levels of riders. The Center also provides lessons, training, summer camps, and guided trail excursions along the lake.
So quit horsing around and give the beautiful Diamond Valley Lake a visit!
