“Great trail climbing up from just north of Idyllwild on Hwy 243 to Pacific Crest Trail.”
— Don Sutton
This trail climbs up from a parking turnout area on Hwy 243 just north of Idyllwild all the way up to Pacific Crest Trail
. It goes through fabulous south-facing conifer slopes with great views of Fern Valley and most of SoCal. Along the way, expect a mixed tread and steep grades.
