There’s a rightness and a rush of gratitude, a surge of humble awe that accompanies a cloud strewn summit. Standing above that much gravity is wonder-inducing and getting there via the fuel of your own foot powered fire is confidence boosting, to say the last. The San Jacinto peak, just one highlight of the Mount San Jacinto State Park and wilderness area, is a backpacker’s dream. At more than 10,000 feet in elevation, the trails that take you skyward snake through sub-alpine forests, mountain meadow openness, snow dusted crag and gnarled granite. But the 14,000 acres of this state park are to be enjoyed by those who don’t summit as much as those who do. You can find Mount San Jacinto, off of Hwy 243 past the charming town of Idyllwild and accessible from Palm Springs via the aerial tram. Stare, breathless, at sweeping scapes of ridged mountains and pine from the tram window or from viewpoints along your backpacking escapade. The San Jacinto area offers two drive-in campsites, four hike-in primitive campsites and adventures for every brand of wilderness craving.
