This is a “use trail”, meaning it is fairly clear to follow but not maintained. This segment is easy to follow. However, it is fairly steep and thin in a couple spots.

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  the direction of travel, the PCT continues downward at this intersection–west to Angeles Crest Highway, east to Islip Saddle (also along Angeles Crest Highway).

Follow the ridge up to a T-Intersection as the ridge turns to east/west. Following the trail west (left) leads to Middle Mt. Williamson. Take the very short trail east (right) to Mt. Williamson.
