Ok, I'm a newb here but...
I was up in Idyllwild this past weekend and there are trails aplenty. I am going out there to have a look around and get the FJ dirty. I am going to have the worlds best pancakes at the dinosaurs first, then head up with a buddy of mine. I'm not looking to be a leader of any sorts, just throwing this out there for a chance to meet some of you.
If there is any interest, I will post more details as we get closer. It will be on Aug. 24th. Probably leaving the OC around 6:30ish am.

Re: Idyllwild

There isn't as many trails up there as you would think, but it should be a nice day anyway. What you can do is take the Indian truck trail (easy to moderate with one fork left will take you to Bee canyon straight dead ends) off of the 243 which will drop you out on Bee Canyon (easy trail/fire road) then turn left (right will take you into Hemet) and head back up to Idillwild have lunch then head north on the 243 to Black mount road and take that to the over look then come back down to Idillwild and you've done just about all the trails in Idillwild. There are some nice hicking trails around there as well.


Also you need to know that some of these trails are closed in the summer because of fire danger so call the ranger station to check on trail conditions.


I wont be able to make the 24th but have fun.

X2 with what Josh said. There aren't as many trails as you might think -- HOWEVER -- the area is fun to hang in and let's face it, anytime you're on the trail, it's all good.

I was out there on Sunday and drove up from the Palm Springs side and found a few trails off the side of the road. I also spoke to the ranger that is at the OHV park and from what he said, they are open. I've never done anything up there more than a fire road, but it's gotta be better than sitting on the 405 goin' to work.

Re: Idyllwild

I live near Idlywild and there are very few trails, quite a few fire roads,that go everywhere.

Enjoy yourself. I have never even drive them, rode the quad on almost every one.

Re: Idyllwild

I was just recently up at the 1000 trails campground for the July 4th holiday. I love that place and as I was pulling the trailer up the hill I noticed some fire roads that look accessable. I figured next time I go camping, I will check them out. The town is great though and I agree, it's better than 405 traffic.

I've been on almost all trails from black mountain to Thomas mountain. Non of it is hard. But I love the entire area. Been there with family and grandsons.

Spend summer nights in idyllwild, and have camped near pine cove for years. Now,
I stay in cabins nearby, when I can.

Maybe up for a trip there soon, but been working too much lately.

Message me if you go. I need to get out and get the FJ dirty.
