The San Jacinto Mountain cablecar is a wonder in itself. But so few people get the chance to climb from desert temperatures o alpine pastures in a matter of 10 minutes. you get that here. I have hiked all over the world and am ashamed to say that I knew nothing of the SJ National park where there are over 120 miles of trails and tracks through stunning scenery. As such I was limited by time to making a five mile yomp along the forest trails near the cable car station. The views, however, from the ridges and edge of the main plateau atop the mountain were fabuloes and I would advise anyone who fancies a day (or a few days) walking up here to buy the 7 day park apss which costs about $20. That way, as long as you carry everything you need in with you (water purification or filter is a must for longer trips) and take all your garbage out with you the propsects for a few days in the wilderness look great... but the Park Wardens warn that you should beware the crowds that inevitably head out that way at weekends and public holidays.
Well worth a visit; a days hike; or a longer camping-based stay.
