Go to the Ranger Station in town to get a permit to park at the trailhead.

Easy and pretty.

Pretty little scenic trail near Idyllwild with nice views of suicide rock. Not terribly challenging even for this beginning hiker, and some lovely shaded areas as you saunter through the forest. Little less than 5 miles, and it seems to be a popular trail as there were quite a few others enjoying the trail today as well.

Very scenic - A must hike for beginners
