I hiked the Deer Springs Trail up to Suicide Rock. This was a great hike, a bit steep but, well worth the climb. At 5'4", I tracked my steps and stairs... 15683 steps and 118 flights of stairs round trip. Just under 7 miles roundtrip. If you need a steep challenge, this is the place to go with great views... 更多
We had never been here and didn't realize it would be so "mountainy." We tried hiking to the peak but had gotten a late start and pooped out about 1 mile from the summit. Our turn around time got us back to the tram just as it was getting dark. The trails were well maintained and very clean.
We camped overnight in Idyllwild, easily picked up our free hiking permits from the ranger station in Idyllwild and got to the trailhead for 9.30am. You need to display an adventure pass (which you can also get at the ranger station) or use your national parks annual pass which also covers you! It was a continuous climb but I wouldn't... 更多
We hiked the Deer Springs trail to suicide rock. It's about 7 miles round trip with a 1900 foot climb. Honestly it didn't feel like it.

Even though there were a lot of tourists walking those trails, it felt peaceful and restorative: the cool air, steady breeze, and breathtaking views were a world away from the glitz of... 更多
Beautiful park with many scenic views and hiking trails. A place to meditate and unplug and enjoy nature at its most pristine. Learn about the all the wildlife and animals that live in the area and it makes for a much more informed visit.
Beautiful hike on the South Ridge Trail to Tahquitz Peak in Idyllwild!! The last mile of the road to the trailhead is unpaved. It's not too bad though since my Corolla was able to crawl to the parking lot (note "crawl" though....). You will need to get a free permit at the ranger station for this hike. This trail definitely... 更多
This is truly an amazing place. To simply imagine the force of nature to have created the mountains and rock formations, stuns. An incredible place to visit, and very different at different times of the year.
