Idyllwild

Getting Here and Around

There are two routes to Idyllwild from interstates; both are slow and winding, but they reward you with some great mountain views. From Interstate 15 south of Lake Elsinore, you can take Highway 74 to the top of the mountain. Scenic Highway 243 takes off from Banning on Interstate 10. Once you get to Idyllwild, you'll discover that you can walk nearly everywhere in the village. You'll need to drive to trailheads, fishing holes, and rock-climbing locations.
