Beautiful views. There are multiple outlook points before the pinnacle. Most of the trail to East Pinnacle from the parking lot is very well maintained and wide trail up until about halfway to the end, where you hit some rocky switchbacks that are fun to climb. Users report that this trail is get for seeing the sunrise. Show more
