The Pinnacles Overlook Trail starts just after the visitor center, heading towards the pinnacles. The trail gently winds up the hillside until you hit your first split. Either choice will bring you around the loop. If you head to the right, a second split will appear. The trail to the right is the Jawbone Trail that leads to the Chaparral Parking area. Upon doing the loop, one finds a beautiful overlook of the pinnacles and balconies formations. Trail should take 20-30 minutes.

Short, easy hike with a very rewarding view on a clear day.
