Very windy through some sections of the trail, enough to affect my balance a bit. Overall, this was a very simple hike. Brought the dog, had some lunch up top, and enjoyed the amazing views (even though it was very foggy/overcast down below, which made for a sea of white below us to the west).

Run by, went over the mountain on the PCT trail on my way to Pasadena. Not quite as grand as the other Williamson in CA.

Great hike, up from the west side of the tunnels and down via Islip Saddle. Here is a google earth track with photos.

Climbed on a nice windy day, with a view of all the fires. on the peak, a glider rode a thermal literally close enough for me to touch it.

Done this one via the Pleasant View ridge route. Twice coming from the Pallett direction and once via Williamson. Check out the plane crash on the right after you leave the first saddle after you leave Williamson on the ridge. Also the register is on the second bump to the west not the traditional summit.

The parking lot was full of hunters, but the only people I saw on this hike were the guys in the glider who kept buzzing the summit when I was up there. Wasn't sure which bump is highest, so I tagged them all. Summit register is on the second bump. A bit smoky and hazy in all directions, but great weather and very worthwhile hike.

Had to park over 4mi down the road West from Islip saddle. Hiked the PCT up to Williamson, then down to Islip Saddle, then over to Mt. Islip. Descended to Little Jimmy, then walked back on SR2 back to the car.

Went here a long time ago. A good summit ridge. I'm still not exactly sure which bump is the highest, they all look higher when you are on them.

I took the trail between Eagle Roost and the 2 tunnels as I wanted to go on a short stroll. It didn't look like there was any significant snow from the road, but once the trail goes around the back (north side), there was about 1-2 feet of snow with drifts up to 3 feet. As the trail is really short, I went for the summit anyway but it took quite a bit longer than anticipated.

This was part of a hike of Pleasant View Ridge. The top of Mount Williamson has great views looking towards the Mojave Desert and overlooking Devil's Punchbowl County Park. Continuing west along the ridge, we summitted Pallet Mountain (7,760 ft.), dropped into Burkhart Saddle, and then up to Will Thrall Peak (7,845 ft.). Finally, further west along the ridge, we got to Pleasant View Ridge Mountain itself (7,983 ft.). The scenery on this ridge is not only beautiful, but varied. On our way to Pallet Mountain, we saw the strewn wreckage of a small plane that had hit the mountainside. Finally, the great vanilla scent of the Jeffrey Pine rode in on the breezes along the ridge.

Climbed up the normal trail up to summit 8214 then onward to the Hundred Peaks summit 8244, great spot for lunch and a view, then onto the true summit 8248ft, the real high point of Pleasant View Ridge. Then I hiked down to summit 8160, cool peak the down the slope to Goodykoontz Peak, named after a very important person in the Hundred Peaks Group. Its the high peak directly set behind Williamson Rock.

Nice steep trail with great views and cool deep canyons. Much

more enjoyable than expected. There are several good trails

that connect to this route.

I hiked to the top on my way across the ridge to Pallett Mountain, Will Thrall Peak and Pleasant View Ridge. I took the Burkhart Trail back down, through Cooper Canyon and Buckhorn Campground.
