Caramba Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"**NOTE** - This area burned in the 2013 Mountain Fire. As of 2016, the trail remains closed east of Saddle Junction. Check with the Idyllwild Ranger Station at 909-382-2921 to determine
if the trail has reopened.

This trip climbs over the Devils Slide and drops down parallel to Tahquitz Creek. Good camping can be found in the Lower Basin Camping Zone east of Willow Creek. Just beyond Caramba, you are rewarded with a breathtaking vista over the desert. If you like your mountains primitive and unpeopled,this outing should suit your taste."

"Tahquitz Valley hangs on the southeastern slope of the San Jacinto Mountains, walled in by granite ridges. Tahquitz Creek flows down the gentle valley beneath the white firs and Jeffrey pines until it abruptly drops over a waterfall and plunges down Tahquitz Canyon to the desert near Palm Springs. Caramba Trail Camp sits along side the creek by the lip of the precipice."
