Detour Directions to PSR
(Updated September 1, 2019)
Due to the strong storms in February 2019, two of the four highways leading up the mountain to PSR were damaged.
Highway 74 from Hemet to Mountain Center is now open for escorted one-way traffic 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
(Please be advised that there can be a up to a 30-40 minute delay when using the escorted traffic access.) Depending on weather conditions, CalTrans' goal is to open highway 74 without traffic escorts by late October, but there may still be some delays on this route as they finish the project.
Highway 243 remains Closed between Banning (I-10) and Idyllwild 24/7. On November 1st highway 243 will open with some form of traffic control.
Highways 371 and 79 from Temecula, and 74 from Palm Desert are not effected by any of these closures.
To help our guests, the map below and detour directions are provided. Please be aware that your GPS and smart phones may still try and route you through one of these closures.
