Dark Canyon Camping Guide

Mount San Jacinto State Park is located in the San Jacinto Mountains and can be reached via Highway 243 from Idyllwild (CA) or by tram from Palm Springs. Elevation in the 14,000 acre park ranges from 6,000 to the 11,000 feet peak of Mt. San Jacinto, the 2nd highest point in southern California. The park’s granite peaks, sub-alpine forests and mountain meadows offer visitors a primitive high-country experience with many hiking trails and spectacular views. The park offers 4 developed campgrounds and several hike-in camping locations (wilderness camping permit required).

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, one of the largest and longest single-lift tramways in the world, carries passengers 2.5 miles from the Valley Station in Chino Canyon to Mountain Station, on the edge of the Mount San Jacinto State Wilderness. After a lift of nearly 6,000 feet, visitors can explore the alpine forest and hike trails of varying difficulty.
