In the direction following the PCT coming down from Cloudburst Summit, the forks in the trail are obvious which way to go. Coming up from Three Points there are a couple that are clearly marked but if the sign fell down the way forward wouldn’t be obvious.

Nearing the crossing with Angeles Crest Highway, veer to the left and follow the thinner trail.
