Such a fun and challenging trail! The parking lot was full, but there is plenty of parking on Reservoir Road. The trail starts out quite easy, and once you get past the peak of Rattlesnake Mountain it gets much more difficult and technical. Prepare to get your hands a little dirty, because there are so many rocks to climb! The trail is a bit hard to follow in some sections. Plan for this trail to take longer than you'd expect. The views from both peaks are incredible! I will definitely come back!

You can park on Reservoir Rd FYI. Good hike, long enough to make a day out of it. Enough scramble to get your heart pumping. Make sure you take a right when you reach Will Warren’s Den Area. You will see the blue trail to the right (it goes down). Follow that to get to Pinnacle Rock. This hike is not for someone who wants a 40 minute hike.

Normally I don't like out and back trails because it's boring taking the same trail back. however this was great. The trail stayed interesting with lots of ups and downs, rocks and roots, etc. The views at both spots are gorgeous. Great work out overall
