Idyllwild is a peaceful mountain area, which is defined by a diverse natural landscape. It encompasses dusty deserts, jagged mountains, and lush, green parks, all of which are still glowing from the summer heat when fall rolls around. This makes it the perfect time to explore the wilderness, as the temperatures start to cool down slightly from the boiling heat. This area has enough to fill a long camping holiday, but is also perfect for an action packed weekend, so make the most of your time here by renting a fall weekend getaway when you visit. Follow the Ernie Maxwell Scenic Trail to catch some of the best natural views, and go rock climbing at Suicide Rock. Here, you can also follow rugged hiking trails in the surrounding trees.
