Trail Overview

This is a well-maintain fire road that takes you up to boulder basin group campsite. On the way there, you'll see some turns-outs for rock climbing and overlanding. During the winter months, trails may be impassable to due to snow. Almost all vehicles could make the drive. There is cell service if needed. If you are just going for a day, the town of Idyllwild is nearby for delicious food and drinks.
