Tahquitz was the first shaman. Tahquitz was a lot of power, and at first he used his power for good. Tahquitz has become the spiritual guardian of all shamans and gave them the power to do good. But over time, Tahquitz began using his power for selfish reasons by interfering with the Cahuilla people. The people became angry and they banned Tahquitz Canyon that now bears his name. He made his home in the San Jacinto Mountains, in a secret cave below the rock now known as the Tahquitz Peak. It is said that his spirit lives on in this canyon. It can sometimes be seen as a big green ball of fire across the night sky. The strange rumblings heard deep into the San Jacinto Mountains, the earthquake, and the crash of rocks are attributed to Tahquitz. Tahquitz Canyon Trail is a loop trail that leads to Tahquitz Falls. From the Visitor Centre at the falls, the trail is steep and rocky with many rock steps to climb. You must have good balance and be able to move up and down the stairs of rock that can be as high as 12 to 15 inches.
