The Pacific Crest Trail extends 2600 miles from Canada to Mexico. Although a few marathon hikers have gone the length in one trip, most take the trail in segments over a period of years. The PC2000 traverses 40 miles of the Arrowhead Ranger District. It enters where FS Road 3N16 crosses Holcomb Creek and exits at Boundary Ridge north of Cleghorn Mountain. The trail is for horse and foot traffic only; all motorized vehicles and bicycles are prohibited. Entry and exit points are numerous, which makes the trail ideal for short nature walks, half-day hikes or day hikes. The most commonly used points of entry/exit are FS Road, 3N16, Crab Flats Trail (2W08), Splinter's Cabin at Deep Creek, Highway 173 near the Mojave River Dam and at Silverwood State Park. Some highlights of the PC2000 as it winds through the Arrowhead District are: the scenic quality of Holcomb Creek and Deep Creek, the granite gorge called Devil's Hole:, the hot springs, the outstanding views of Silverwood Lake and Little Horsetheft Canyon.
