For those of you who love to hike, Idyllwild offers some incredible hiking trails. The other day, Christine C. sent in the following picture of them hiking on Ernie Maxwell Trail, and couldn't believe how nice it was hiking it. The picture was taken Saturday morning, August 18th, after the rain and after the nearby fire. She noted that she loved this section of the trail which is about half way between Humber Park and the dirt road, just beyond a creek bed. The oaks are very large and well established there, they have such a feeling of sanctuary and peace. The Ernie Maxwell trail was relatively untouched from the fire. Christine noted that she had been walking the trail in the mornings since the first day after they reopened the area after the fire. The number of people on it are down from the beginning of the summer but there’s still a number of the regular hikers on the trail. Everyone is extremely caring about leaving trash along the trail, so you do feel that people care about nature to keep this place of beauty a joy to hike on.
Christine. Thank you for sending this your hiking experience along Ernie Maxwell Trail. Thanks.
