To reach the Agua Caliente Mountains go north at exit 87 on Interstate 8 in Sentinel. After 12 miles go left (SW) onto Hyder Road which parallels the railroad. In about 3.2 miles you will reach the few homes that comprise the settlement of Hyder and the highpoint of the Agua Caliente Mountains is about 1/2 mile south on top of the lava-covered hill. Park next to the railroad on the northeast side of the hill and then hike up the rocky slopes to the summit. It takes about 45 minutes to reach the top and there is an elevation gain of 700 ft. 3/96 RLC
