The High Desert Trail is a continuous network incorporating several trails including the Burhhart Trail, Devil's Punchbowl Trail, Manzanita Trail and Southfork Trail. The High Desert Trail system joins the San Gabriel Mountains with the Mojave Desert, and combined with the Pacific Crest Trail crossing the Angeles Crest, it forms two small loops or one large loop. The trail affords the PCT traveler a "high desert experience" alternative. The trail navigates steep-sided canyon walls with exposed granite masses and gravel screen slopes as it parallels and crosses creek beds.
