Easy trail for beginers. Good for light cardio. Half trail is flat and other half is up and down hill.

Mild hike, with a short steep part at the end. We crossed onto the lake loop to enjoy the vistas. Great wildflower bloom going on right now!

Finally got out to Diamond Valley with my dog. Was very excited. I started to drive up a hill hoping to find the trail head and was met by a very unfriendly "NO Dogs Allowed" sign. Very disappointed because that's why I chose this route!

Didn't end up doing the hike because when we got there we saw a huge sign saying no dogs permitted.
