Tahquitz Peak (8,846 feet) is the southern citadel of the San Jacinto high country. Its granite spurs and steep battlements rise impressively above Strawberry Valley on one side and Tahquitz Valley on the other. From the Forest Service lookout on its summit, you are rewarded with breathtaking panoramas over the southern half of the San Jacintos, with the Santa Rosas on the distant skyline. Tahquitz Peak is named for the powerful demon of Cahuilla legend who allegedly lived in a cave below the peak and came out at night to terrorize and devour those who ventured too close to his sacred mountain. The summit lookout tower, held up by steel beams, was built in 1938 to replace a more primitive wooden structure built around 1918. It is manned by volunteers during ?re season, usually June–November.
