Description

This trail branches off the La Milagrosa Trail and climbs the southern wall of Agua Caliente Canyon to the ridge between Agua Caliente and an unnamed canyon to the south. It then goes past Gnat Tank and a trail junction before starting downhill again. The trail then crosses upper Agua Caliente Canyon and rejoins the La Milagrosa Trail on the north side of Agua Caliente Canyon.

The trail crossing of upper Agua Caliente Canyon provides off-trail access to a picturesque rocky pool and a small seasonal waterfall tucked into the canyon narrows about 100 yards downstream of the trail.
