Hot chocolate! Chocolate! The owners are the best and the business has their manufacturing facility on site so you can take a peek at the innerworkings. They've got tasty truffles and many assorted chocolatey drinks and cold brew. New location in Strawberry Creek Plaza near the post office.

Parks & Nature

The jumping off point for many fun trails like Ernie Maxwell trail and Devil’s slide. It's a short drive to town and has unbelievable views of Lily Rock on the way. Must have an Adventure Pass to park in the lot.

Take a meandering walk around the park on the perimeter trail, or hike up to the Nature Center. Feeling more ambitious? Hike from the park all the way to Suicide Rock or beyond to San Jacinto Peak!

Getting around

Winter travel

Don’t forget to be prepared with chains/ cables for your car when traveling in the winter. Keep an eye on the forecast as your stay approaches because they may be required in winter weather! The CalTrans website is a great resource for road conditions.
