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 with a large drop to the north. Since it isn’t maintained, extra care in this area is advised.
The Pleasant View Ridge Trail comes to a T-Intersection as the ridge turns to roughly parallel the San Andreas Fault. Following the trail west (left) leads to Middle Mt. Williamson. The very short trail east (right) leads to Mt. Williamson.
Middle Mt. Williamson is a very short distance from the Pleasant View Ridge Trail and can be seen from it to the South. Just follow the short spur trail up from the junction.
