Pinnell Mountain Trail is a 22.3 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near Central, Alaska that features a great forest setting and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from March until October.
Completed this hike in the middle of summer and it was still in the 40s most of the day. While some may argue the grandeur of this hike does not live up to other alaskan hikes around the coasts, it does present a mysterious and unusually quiet beauty a seasoned hiker will appreciate. The trail can be difficult to follow at times as it does not appear to be well traveled. Snow was noted in small patches here even in july and the wind is very strong as there is not much to stop it at these altitudes so dress appropriately even if it is warm in fairbanks
