Its is a requirement of 6 dollars a person if you wanna come in for day use to start out with and thats not bad. My girlfriend and i did the entire loop today but my phone ended up dying so only recorded so much. Beautiful trail runs right next to the lake very quiet and peaceful. Kind of muddy with some fishermen here or there all and all a nice one and would recommend. Happy trails!

YES it costs money do your research people... other than that the park appears to be well maintained til you start getting along the edges of the water where you will find trash washed upon the shower. My dog loved to romp the area but I was suspicious of the water and grounds conditions based on the appearance. Starting to look like Lake Elsinore up in here... will not be returning unless work is done to better maintain the water front.

Lake Skinner trail is not worth it. Cost too much to enter the lake for a parking lot hike.

We loved the many lil trails that led us to the lake each time. We just came to explore and we did. We found a water park within which we’ll definitely be back with the kids for that.

Instead of walking around/along the lake, the trail leads from one parking lot to another.

Nice easy hike. There is a fee to enter the recreation area. $6 a person plus $2 a dog. Today (Thanksgiving) there was a $20 flat fee.
