Eagle Valley Road (also known as Tin Mine Road) is your out-and-back expressway for exploring Eagle Valley, a region due west of Lake Matthews. The road tees off from La Sierra Avenue in Lake Matthews, CA, and is an unmaintained dirt road. Over the five and a half miles, the road bounces you between rutted-out dirt, loose rocks, smooth pea gravel, and even short stretches of decrepit asphalt. Most of the area you will travel through appears to be Riverside County land of unknown ownership. As such, the first mile has sadly become a popular dumping ground for locals who couldn’t be bothered to take their trash to an actual dump. The rest of the road circles the Eagle Valley area, allowing you to explore dozens of trails. Be respectful and heed “No Trespassing” signs when you see them since the road passes privately owned properties. The trail ends at a section of land just off La Sierra Ave. that is private property, so you’ll have to come out the entrance you came in. Luckily, there are many more optional routes to explore on your way back if you’ve had your fill of Eagle Valley Road.
