nice trail but surface is rocky, and if lots of leaves accumulate, the uneven surface can be unpredictable for little hikers. Hiking with 2 kids (6, 8 yr old) and they did the trail without much trouble, but there were a couple falls and minor bruises. Overall a good trail w rolling hills. We saw several trail runners on it. If starting at the West side trailhead (near the playground) and you go counter-clockwise the trail markers count down from 28 to 1.

I really enjoyed this trail. Great for an evening hike and plenty challenging for an Okie who isn't used to rocks and hills. Will definitely be back.

A great relaxing hike after doing the summit trail. The summit trail was crowded but I only ran into a few people on the base loop. The trail is well marked in most places but several times the marks had vanished and I was wondering if I was still on the trail or on a dry stream bed. The nature views are great but skip this one if you're seeking isolation. It's too close to highways in some parts and you can hear the traffic flying by. All in all, a nice hike over somewhat rocky terrain that I'll absolutely do again.

Fairly flat. Goes all the way around the base of Pinnacle Mountain. Good hike to get away from the crowds on the summit trails. Good wildflower viewing in spring. Suburban location ensures civilization (roads, buildings, power lines, etc.) is in sight everywhere.

Great hike if you can go when it's not busy. My German Sheppard seemed to enjoy it too.

Good opportunity to get in the woods, but you will see quite a few people along the way. This is ok if you do not mind sharing the trail

Warm up hike for the east summit trail. Beautiful, I was out at dawn.

Overall a fun hike, if you begin at the west base and go left, starting at trail marker 1 the hike is much harder relative to going right and doing the trail backwards. If you want an easy three mile walk go right, if you want a slightly strenuous hike go left from the west base. It's a fun hike either way though, rabbits, snakes, insects of all types, turtles, and deer can all be seen if you pay close attention. The only thing I dislike about the trail overall is there isn't much to see, it's a fun hike nevertheless.

Easy enough trail. Very rocky. Good for hiking, not so much for trail running.
