No burn areas on the trail, but you have views of the burn. Driving on the highway between Lake Hemet and Mountain Center takes you through the burn, and from Mountain Center to Idyllwild is through the burn too.
A stock truck will be fine,as would a Subaru or something similar. It’s an easy trail, but there are some great views, so it’s definitely worth the trip.
