Walking

The Walnut Trail is a dead end, but it is beautiful in the spring time with lots of wild flowers growing along the trail. Very level and peaceful, but I can imagine it will become more weedy and narrow as summer rolls around and vegetation grows. We used it as an opportunity to stretch out our hike to Indian Fort Lookout and enjoyed the extra distance it added. If you're looking for ways to mix up your hikes at the Pinnacles, I highly recommend it.

Well kept and well marked trails. We even braved steep rock scramble up to the top of Indian Fort Lookout. So fun!

A great place with many trails to explore! Beginner, moderate, and more advanced sections! Good place for many. Be careful when it gets muddy, it is really slippery.

Easy but steep hike in first mile, good footing but 600+ feet in less than a mile. Great payoff views and rock formations.

Walking

Trail was aittle soft and wet from the rain night before. Leaf cover on the trail was somewhat of an issue with the mud causing it to be slicker. Overall, it was a gorgeous day, overcast and a little windy but that didn't take away from the views and the hike!

Great view. Enjoyed the east pinnacle view too! Tough on the knees back down. We found it easier to jog—less impact overall on the knees.
