One of our hiking club members, Jack Clough has been videoing some of the hikes we do. If you'd like to see Jack's video on UTube, check out the link below:

DESCRIPTION: Pleasant View Ridge is a compression thrust ridge that resulted from the movement of the San Andreas Fault. The fault line passes directly through the area, and helped to form the Devil’s Punchbowl. This area is one of the most geologically interesting in North America. Farther out to the north, the Antelope Valley can be seen from the ridge. This area can be cold and very windy, especially in the winter. It can be extremely hot during the summer months. Therefore, Spring and Fall months are the best time to attempt this hike.
HOW TO GET TO THE TRAILHEAD: Take SR 14 to SR 138 east to Longview Road. Turn right. Then turn left onto Ft. Tejon Road, and a quick right onto Devil’s Punchbowl Road. The road dead-ends at Devil’s Punchbowl Natural Area.
