At over 5000 feet in elevation, “Mile High Idyllwild” is a favorite day trip for locals and travelers alike.  The 80 minute drive passes spectacular vista points as you climb from the desert floor and reach deep into the San Jacinto Mountains.

Once there, you’ll find a rustic and charming, art-filled village with galleries, antique stores, restaurants and other surprises.  Nearby hiking trails let you explore the quiet wilderness area high above Palm Springs.  It’s a cool getaway during the desert summer.
