The CHP has fielded several inquiries about whether cabin renters will be allowed to enter the Idyllwild area. Any person or entity having business in the Idyllwild area, including cabin/house renters, WILL be allowed into the Idyllwild area. In order to minimally impact the Idyllwild community, the CHP wants to ensure the movement of people and goods having business in Idyllwild continues. Our goal is to restrict visitors who park along the roadway to play in the snow, blocking access for emergency personnel and road repair equipment. As always, the CHP San Gorgonio Pass thanks both residents and visitors for their patience while we assist this community in recovering from the most recent storm.
