    Lots of good riding out of Hurkey Creek.

    Geoladders has lots of information on the trails here...

    Or you can look at the routes they use for the Idyllwild Spring Challenge here...

    I have a short video of an Idyllwild ride on my blog - http://socalmtbiking.blogspot.com/. Just click on Idyllwild under "Ride Descriptions" in the left column. The video is from Alvin Meadows which is right outside the town of Idyllwild.

    If you're only going to ride 1 day I'd probably recommend going to Hurkey Creek which is 10-15 minutes from Idyllwild. The "24 hour course" is great for a short ride. If you want more than 10 miles then there's many ways to extend it. Check the link to the maps posted above.
