Red Tahquitz Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This rewarding trip visits the highlights of the San Jacinto Mountains’ rich forests and verdant meadows, one of the most well-watered and scenic mountain regions of southern California. The high plateau of the San Jacinto Mountains—with its thick forests of pine and fir, numerous lush meadows, springs and perennial streams, and boulder-dotted landscape— closely resembles the Kern Plateau region of the southern Sierra Nevada. This is one of the most scenic regions in southern California’s mountains. Climbers are attracted to the area near the trailhead by many challenging routes up Suicide Rock and Lily Rock (locally known as Tahquitz Rock). Lily Rock offers some of the most difficult and challenging rock climbing in southern California."
