Dear Carlos A. Serafim,

This place is famous for two reasons:

Firstly, the primary peak is named after legendary Chief Tahquitz of the Sobaba Band of the Luiseño People, or Payomkowishum (Lily Rock is part of Tahquitz Peak. It was and still is referred to as Tahquitz Rock). The legend goes that Chief Tahquitz accused of killing the maiden daughters of other chiefs. At his execution he vanished in a puff of smoke. It is believed the rock covers a cave where the demon is imprisoned. The trial from this parking lot is called Devil's Slide Trail.

Secondly, this is the location where the Yosemite Decimal System (YDS) for rock climbing was developed which is the rock climbing scale used in North America.
