Deer Springs Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This strenuous hike heads up Deer Springs Trail via long switchbacks, then winds 1 mile east up to the top of Suicide Rock, a wide, open clearing with views of pine-covered mountains and Lily Rock. Easily accessible from downtown Idyllwild and CA 243, this is one of the area’s most popular trails, according to the US Forest Service."
