town.idyllwild

Idyllwild has quadrupled in population in the past 2 decades; so the secret is out. Mountain cabin rentals - without a big recreation lake and ski slopes. Leave the ski bunnies at Big Bear & head for the other hills (above Hemet & Palm Springs) for some high altitude, magnificent scenery. Granite peaks & pine forests surround this small tourist town in SoCal. Tahquitz Peak is the icon that hovers above the alpine village. Mountain bikers & rock climbers, and all outdoor enthusiast will love the huge playground of parks & forests.
