Scenic routes from Hemet/San Jacinto and Temecula

Driving either east or west over the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa mountains is very scenic in terms of dramatic geological formations and desert flora. From Palm Desert's El Paseo, drive west up into the mountains on Hwy 74, past Hwy 371, until it will eventually take you into Hemet and San Jacinto. If you turn left at hwy 371, you'll drive through the Cahuilla Indian Reservation, and with an addition jog make it to Temecula, the most southernly of California wine regions (and generally speaking the least likely to product a good bottle of wine). See web link for map.

El Paseo Drive Courtesy Shuttle

Along El Paseo is a courtesy shuttle which will pick up folks for free and drop them off along the drive. Most young people will easily walk from one end of El Paseo to another, but for senior citizens or families the shuttle may come in handy.
