Fire Closures/Trails Update:
All regional trails out of the Idyllwild Nature Center are open. Some regional mountain park hiking areas are still under fire closures. This includes McCall Equestrian Campground trails, and some trails adjoining Hurkey Creek Park. Hurkey Creek Visitors may enjoy a short hike to Idyllwild Park using the hillside perimeter trails. Hurkey Creek visitors are allowed to Idyllwild free of charge. US Forest Service trails in nearby Garner Valley are open. They include Spitler Peak, Thomas Mountain, and Fobes.
