Join us on a 11 mile hike from Humber Park in Idyllwild to the Deer Springs Trail Head. This is a strenuous hike . There is 2400' of elevation gain. From Humber Park we will travel the 2.5 miles up Devils Slide Trail to Saddle junction. From there we will take the PCT 4.1 miles gradually climbing through the open forest crossing the ridge at about 9000 feet around the rim to Strawberry Junction. From Strawberry Junction we follow Deer Springs Trail down 4.1 miles descending about 300 feet to the trail head..
What to Bring?
Please bring 3 liters of water, lunch and snacks. Be sure to bring sunscreen, a hat, sturdy and comfortable hiking shoes and dress in layers.
Because there is a limit on the number of hikers allowed on Devils Slide I will get the permit in advance. So if you are interested please register as soon as possible. This hike will be limited to the first twelve (12) that preregister.
From the Ranger Station in Idyllwild drive 1 mile north on highway 243. Park on the north side of the road across from The County Park Nature Center. From there we will go to Humber Park where the hike will begin.
Would it rain, the hike will be canceled.
