Lake Perris State Recreation Area Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Lake Perris combines a full range of water sports with lots of dryland activities. Two swimming beaches, two fishing piers, and a designated area for sailboats, sailboards, and nonmotorized boats are separated from the water-skiers. There is also a separate area for scuba diving. Fish caught in the lake include trout, bass, bluegill, and catfish. Allesandro Island, in the eastern part of the lake, has a boat-in picnic area and a trail to its cone-shaped summit. A 9-mile trail for hikers and mountain bikers circles the lake, paralleled by a trail farther inland for horses.

The Ridge Top Hiking Trail provides a desert backpacking trip, while a 1.4-mile climb of Terri Peak allows day hikers to share a similar experience. At the southern end of the dam, rock climbers practice on the walls of Big Rock Area. The Sherman Indian Museum is located on the north shore of the lake, about 0.5 mile from the park entrance. Stay limit fifteen days. Open all year."
