Section E of the Pacific Crest Trail runs 109.3 miles from the town of Agua Dulce to Highway 58 near Mojave. This section of the PCT is radically different from the rest of the trail, and not in a good way: the majority of it runs through the Mojave Desert, and much of it isn't even a trail at all. Instead, the route follows many gravel roads and the Los Angeles Aqueduct. The trail was intended to follow the "crest" of the nearby Liebre Mountains, but private land managers of the Tejon Ranch have refused to allow passage across their land for the trail.
The current rendition of section E passes Old Sierra Highway; Angeles National Forest; Big Tree Trail 14W02; CRHT; Lake Hughes, CA; Highway 138; Lancaster, CA; Los Angeles Aqueduct; Tylerhorse Canyon; Gamble Spring Canyon; Tehachapi, CA; and Mojave, CA.
Trail length: 109 miles
