The 18,000-acre Agua Tibia Wilderness lies northwest of Palomar Mountain, straddling the San Diego and Riverside county line in Cleveland National Forest. Agua Tibia Mountain, one of the three distinct mountain blocks of the Palomar range, is the centerpiece of the wilderness that bears its name. Sparse groves of Coulter pine, bigcone Douglas-fir, incense-cedar, live oak, and black oak cover the highest elevations, while the lower slopes are scrub-covered and fluted by many steep canyons holding intermittent streams. The wilderness was named after one of these streams, Agua Tibia (“tepid water”) Creek.

Hike to a lovely viewpoint in the San Jacinto Mountains overlooking the less than subtly named Suicide Rock.

Make this an all-day hike to and from the summit ridge, or an overnight backpack, or set your sights on an intermediate destination. In any case, there is only one direct way up to the forested heights of Agua Tibia Mountain: the Dripping Springs Trail. In cool weather, this is a fine hike for your well-conditioned dog, but be sure you take plenty of extra water along.
