Beautiful to go on a bike

Pretty walk, not much elevation gain. We walked a total of 6.54 miles, mile markers along the path. There wasn't a whole lot of people out today, plan on doing the full 21 miles soon. Definitely do it on a cool day, it was only 66° out and we were still warm, as there's no shade on the path...although there are several covered rest stops and porta potties on the path.

when we looked up the info it said open year round but when we drove there the gate was locked and said closed Mon and Tues you would think someone would post this big waste of time

loved the trail. Loved the lake. Even though there were a ton of people it didn't feel crowded. I'm sure after the super bloom there would be less. I'm definitely going to have to get a kayak. Beautiful scenery.

Although I have not hiked the whole loop I've gone pretty far I love it it's breezy and very pretty hot as hell in the summer. Love going across the damn

Have not been here, 21 miles biking around the lake sounds nice but is there really 4700' elevation gain?

Hiked it. Took 9 hours but at 61 not bad. $7 to park, $2 for trail pass, got my monies worth. Good conditioning for Joshua Tree.

Great bike trail. A bit challenging, but I'm not a "regular" biker. I will do it again!

If you are into exciting hikes then definitely do not go to Diamond Valley Lake to hike. It is just one big loop with nothing special. The lake is man made and the entire time you are just staring at a body of water and walking around it. No little cool things to discover.
