Beautiful views, and a well maintained trail. Wear proper protection for your toes, very steep and rocky at times.

The trailhead is actually about 100 or so yards down the road from the GPS provided coordinates. The provided coordinates lead to a private home. The parking lot is small but flat. Get there early. The trail is shaded but incredibly rocky. Wear good shoes. The money shot comes at the very end when you reach the peak. However, during busy season the peak is probably really crowded and people have no qualms about picnicking up there taking up space so latecomers have to navigate around the people already there to see the views. Good hike though in terms of exertion.

Beautiful views, rocky in spots & pretty crowded. Wear good hiking boots. Saw three copperheads on the trail. Would definitely do again.

Not a bad trail. Feels like a fire road, although hard to tell as it was snow-covered. It’s all hunting grounds, so wearing bright colors is recommended.

I may be a little biased because my awesome husband planned the most perfect proposal at the top of the Pinnacle but this place is gorgeous! It is a very long hike but the views are awesome. Especially in the fall!

I couldn’t find the trail head that is used here, but I found a different one and made my own path. It’s currently pretty wet from all the rain. A lot of the trails are flooded, but DEFINITELY worth the views!

A longer hike that takes you past pulpit rock and up to the pinnacles, which are beautiful vistas. Rocky at times but overall a good hike.

You can park in Game Land Parking. Easy walk with some steep parts. Camp site along the way.
