From Los Angeles
  1. There are 2 ways to get to Idyllwild from L.A. while Highway 243 out of Banning is being rebuilt. Both ways work. They are about the same amount of time. The way through Temecula is probably about 10 minutes shorter. Choose either route.
  2. If you take Highway 10 East all the way to Palm Desert, take the Monterey Exit in Palm Desert and go right (South). Monterey Ave. is also the 74. Once you exit, stay on Monterey Ave. (Hwy. 74) all the way up to Mountain Center which is 10 minutes away from Idyllwild. You will have to turn onto Hwy. 243 for the last 10 minutes but this route is very direct. It will probably add about 50 minutes to your drive.
  3. If you want to take the route through Temecula, take Highway 10, or whichever highway you take to go East until you hit 15 or 215. Take either one you come to first South (15 or 215 South)
