Lily Rock and Tahquitz Peak


This pic was taken from the Idyllwild Nature Center viewpoint and features both Lily Rock (8,000 feet) and Tahquitz Peak (8,828 feet). Lily Rock (also known as Tahquitz Rock) was named in 1898, either for its “lily-white” appearance or in honor of Lily Eastman, and has been a popular free-climbing destination since the 1930’s.  Tahquitz gets its name from a demon in Soboda Indian legend.
