Summer is one of the most lovely times of the year, especially in California, as it complements the stunning natural scenery of the state in the best way possible. One of the places where summer truly comes to life is in the mountain area of Idyllwild, which is defined by sprawling, dusty deserts, and jagged mountains. Make the most of your time here by renting a summer getaway as your home for the holiday, which will keep you in the heart of the natural world. Enjoy stretching out on the shores of Lake Hemet, where you can also fish in its deep, blue waters, and go on light, tree-lined hikes around Idyllwild Nature Center. You could even challenge yourself to the rough, unkempt trails that surround Suicide Rock.
