Winter is a time that many people associate with snowy, stormy skies, cold weather, and wet feet. Yet, in California, the weather remains mils all year round, which makes it the perfect place to come on a camping trip. In fact, the mountain area of Idyllwild boasts a range of outdoor activities and stunning views to make you forget all about the cold. When you’re here, make sure you stay in a winter getaway, which will keep you close to the action, and will also banish any winter chills at night. Climb and hike your way up the mountain sides of Tahquitz Peak, where you can catch some of the most impressive views, or follow the Ernie Maxwell Scenic Trail, which will wind you into the trees.
