Great hike! Not difficult. Combined it with the caves for a nice loop from the campground.

We were told at the check in desk “no, you don’t want to do this hike”. It was apparently based on our apparent age! We ignored the “suggestion” and completed the high peaks trail and the caves. Challenging, but worth every step.

pretty cool trail, but fairly exposed.

If you can start from the east side of the park and finish the high peaks trail first. It is hot and dry so be sure to bring lots of water. We saw 4-5 condors flying around us in the middle of the park, one flew right over us! Be sure to bring sun screen and flashlights. Once you make it up and down to the Western parking lot you can fill up on water. We drank 5 liters between the two of us and completed the hike in ~4 hours... but we were dehydrated... so please drink water!! The caves on the northern side are not to be missed, the old pinnacles trail is flat and easy.
