trip report by site editor Rick McCharles
In lovely Idyllwild, California, I inquired at the Ranger Station for the best hike in the area.
They recommended Suicide Rock, Deer Springs Trailhead … just a mile away.
6.5 miles round trip
2000 ft elevation gain
Lovely. A relatively easy day hike.
I did see one snake of indeterminate make and model. (A hiker told me that he had seen a Rattler about a year earlier on this same trail.)
Check Local Hikes for more information.
You can continue to the summit of San Jacinto Peak from that same trailhead.
What is this, by the way?
