Idyllwild is a charming town located just two hours from both San Diego and Los Angeles along Highway 111. This picturesque town sits within the San Bernardino National Forest and is known as being an outdoor lover's paradise! Idyllwild has fishing, biking, picnicking, horseback riding, and there are hundreds of miles of wilderness trails in the area for hikers. Nearby Mount San Jacinto State Park requires permits for hikers and backpackers, but visitors can ride a tram 2.5 miles up the mountainside for some of the most spectacular views around of the desert and surrounding mountain ranges! Rock climbing is a popular sport in Idyllwild, with such legendary peaks as Suicide Rock and Deception Pillar. In wintertime, Idyllwild turns picture postcard perfect with snow blanketing the hills and pine trees. In addition to the surrounding natural beauty of the area, Idyllwild has an array of specialty shops and antique shops, art galleries, restaurants and cafes, all locally owned. For lodging, Idyllwild has dozens of cozy mountain cottages and cabins, bed and breakfasts and inns, from rustic to luxurious. Come escape the noise and crowds of the cities, and experience the quiet beauty of Idyllwild!
