Toro Peak Trail

The Toro Peak Trail is very scenic.  On a clear day you can see 50 miles or more in all directions.  The trail is a graded Forest Road with few if any challenges.  I’d rate it as a 1 to 1+ in good weather.  However it is very high and often has quite a bit of snow.  There is a section of Shelf Road next to a cliff of a few hundred feet that would be dangerous if there was snow or ice.  The trail head  is located south and east of Hemet and east of the community of Anza on the Pines to Palms Highway (Hwy 74).  From I-15 on the south side of Temecula take Hwy 79 east to Hwy 371.  Continue through Anza to Hwy 74 east.  The trailhead is about 6 miles east of the intersection of 371 and 74 on the south side.
