I took this trail from the PCT trailhead to the top of the ridge, where it intersects with the dirt road. you can continue on down the PCT into Agua Dulce from here. I continued up the ridge along the trail to the high point at just over 5000 ft. It had snowed a few inches the day before, so a lot of the trail was covered in fresh powder. Cold, and very windy on the summit. My thermometer read 38. Below freezing with the wind chill. about 8 miles total.
