    Devils Slide Trail to Tahquitz Peak
    rating optionrating optionrating optionrated 2rated 2
    While I've hike the Idyllwild area a few times, this was new territory for me (mostly...). On this trip, we started out at Humber Park and ascended the Devil's Slide Trail up to the Saddle where we took the trail across Tahquitz meadow and Little Tahquitz valley. We then followed the PCT to the Red Tahquitz use trail. This "trail" was difficult to navigate at times due to excessive dead fall in areas. Since we were going up, it wasn't hard to figure out, however...

    After having a short but relaxing lunch, we headed back down through Little Tahquitz Valley and followed the trail up to the Tahquitz Peak Lookout(8828ft)where we snapped a few obligatory photos and snacked a bit. Finally, we headed down the South Ridge Trail to it's end then took a short cut over to the Ernie Maxwell trail which lead us back to the parking lot. We arrived just about 8 hours after we started.
