Tahquitz Peak Via South Ridge Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This trail trip climbs the steep south ridge to Tahquitz Peak, zigzagging up through stands of Jeffrey pine, white fir, and live oak, with chinquapin thickets and lodgepole pine near the top.
Various points along the trail offer far-reaching vistas south over the Desert Divide country, and northwest over Strawberry Valley to Marion Mountain and its rocky spurs. Years ago, the route followed an old, steep footpath up from Keen Camp; old-timers would hardly recognize today’s well-graded trail."
