Nice cardio push up to some great mountain views. The occasional flat track offers up a nice break from the grind up.

Access Info

We stay in Palm Spring. Heading west out of Rancho Mirage on Hwy 74 is a winding climb, even in a car, towards Mountain Centre then right on SR243 into Idyllwild. Left on Tollgate Rd to Apela Rd. Veer tight and go to the parking lot at the end of Apela. Trails head starts on the fire service road heading up. You can also stop at The Hub Cyclery in Idyllwild, GREAT SERVICE there and good trail resource.
