A scenic 24 mile drive through the San Jacinto Mountains will bring you to Idyllwild, a quaint mountain village nestled among the tall pines, sweet smelling cedars and Legendary rocks.  Great for Rock Climbing are Tahquitz and Suicide Rocks which attracts beginners as well as seasoned rock climbing professionals.
