The trailhead is located at the corner of the parking lot at Islip Saddle along Angeles Crest Highway next to the vault toilets. There are two trailheads at this corner. The one further to the left and going up is the Pacific Crest Trail.
The Pleasant View Ridge Trail begins at a T-intersection forming a junction with the Pacific Crest Trail and heads north up the ridge [note: regardless of direction of travel, the PCT continues downward at this intersection–west to Angeles Crest Highway, east to Islip Saddle (also along Angeles Crest Highway).
