Idyllwild Cliffs and Peaks Image

Image taken on cliffs near the Tahquitz Peak Lookout Tower



We are lucky that we live in a land of abundant natural resources. I live locally in Idyllwild. My wife and I enjoy hiking in the local mountains. There are so many beautiful trails to take ...

I am sharing with you some of our hiking experiences. Over time, the listing will expand. The trails on this page are day hikes and climbs - all can be completed in one day. Some are easy, while others may be moderate or stenuous. Each hike listed will include a video tour of the hike. This is meant to provide you with a true sense of the experience. I have also included the .GPX files for each. This will allow you to import it into your favorite hiking GPS app and have access to the exact route map that we used.

It is my hope that you might come to love the experience of hiking the great trails of Idyllwild, as much as we do.

Happy Trails to you and yours!!
