Hey all,

I may have a chance to come at the tram from the Hemet side this October. I know there is a good trail from Idyllwild to the tram, but it doesn't look good from the hemet valley to Idyllwild?
Any options here..?

It is an interesting question. I have not heard of any "good" trails or routes from the Hemet Valley to Idyllwild or to the tram. As you may already know, a number of dirt roads traverse the area that are used by jeeps and dirt bikes. With you, I would like to hear of better options, if they exist.

It may be interesting to follow the San Jacinto River to Strawberry Creek and then up the creek to Idyllwild, if that were possible in our time.

Howdy Hawkbill :)

Check Cal Topo. There are numerous fire roads going up from Hemet to Idylwild. In fact, my eyes started crossing when I looked at potential routes :lol:

Miles of smiles,

Bee Canyon Truck trail comes to mind.
