First snowfall. Simpson was full of blanket of snow-beautiful place. My granddaughter has taken friends and family for photo shoots . If you like hiking it is very refreshing to be up there.

Simpson park offers a variety of hiking and mountain biking trails. Pack a lunch and make. Picnic of your adventures. Some trails lead to incredible views of Diamond Valley Lake. Not much shade on the trails so bring hats and pack sun screen.

We went on trailer hike at Simpson park with family friends. Great views of the San Jacinto Valley and Diamond Valley Lake. Most of the trails are easily travelled.

Best trails in the area. Miles and miles of flowy single track. Start early because it gets hot in the summer.

Simpson Park is a wonderful viewpoint to see and experience the Hemet Valley. With vistas over the valley and Diamond Valley Lake it is a fine place for a picnic, sightseeing, picture taking, hiking, etc.
