- The Agua Caliente Section of the PCT extends from Highway 79 northward through oak woodlands. The trail crosses private land and past a private campground before crossing Agua Caliente Creek (seasonal flow) several times. It then contours up along the Creek before climbing east above a tributary drainage and into chaparral. Turning northward, the trail enters oak bottomlands again and begins a series of crossings of Agua Caliente Creek. At about the 4-mile point, the trail begins to climb northwest out of the creek. This segment ends as the trail traverses about 20 vertical feet above and parallel to the Indian Flats road. Watch for poison oak in the bottomlands.
