No posted signs and no psycho with a shotgun. Access road style trail that has a steady climb, the last hill before the overlook is steep and loose.

This site is describing two different locations. The Pinnacle that is open to the public and that has the Appalachian Trail running through it can be found here-

This is absolutely private property and has been posted as such repeatedly unfortunately people rip them down. This should not be a trail on this site as it is PRIVATE

This was a great hike. However a friend of mine did it a week later. Was confronted by a man with a shot gun yelling for him to get off his property.
This apparently is no longer public land.

It was fantastic. I only died ten times , but so worth it ! The view was beautiful ! I always imagined what it was like to climb one of the mountains as I would drive through the Scranton Valley , and I finally get to say that I have ! To the ones who said the owners do not welcome hikers, I saw absolutely no signs of No Tresspassing anywhere. Not recommended for the faint of heart, smokers, or some who are afraid of heights. Very steep climb !

amzing hike. i took a buddy up there once after noticing a hikeable mountain on google earth. didn't even know there would be a trail. we ended up hitting the top right at sunset and it was beautiful. that final stretch of rough climbing is the price you have to pay for such a beautiful view

I liked the fact that it was a little challenging due to the steep climb. Even though a storm was rolling in and it was foggy the view from the top was great. I would definitely do it again just to see how far I could see on a clear day. The only thing I would say for improvement is the trail could be marked more clearly where the paths split off. All in all great trail though.

Very steep incline which made the way down pretty challenging in some areas, highly suggest wearing footwear with treads, but the views at the top make up for any struggle on the way up. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a challenging hike.

Definitely a hard trail. Very steep at the end and all rocks... There is an easier way to get down and avoid the rocks on the way back. Recommend this trail, great views.

It started with a lot of uphill but evened out for a bit before the last ascent to the peak. Great experience. Beautiful view.
