My favorite day hike in Vermont! A relatively short hike, most of this trail isn't very steep. There are 2 or 3 rock "scrambles" along the way, but mostly it's an enjoyable hike for some spectacular views at the summit.
This trail can get very crowded though so try and do it on a weekday or in the winter (even better views!)

We hiked from the Pinnacle Meadows trailhead. If you have people not able to make a long hike, there is a lovely view and rock bench to sit on after about 15 minutes of hiking. The trail gradually ascends, and gets much steeper for a short time after the junction with the main trail. Rock steps help you in the ascent. You emerge from the forest onto the Pinnacle on a bedrock trail. The views are worth every step of the trail and more! In total, the hike to the Pinnacle took us 1 hour 10 minutes. We took several rest breaks. It took us 50 minutes back down. Our group was two adults and a 15 year old.

It's a great way to spend some of your day. Bring water and don't forget the bug spray.

Always a great little jaunt, however crawling with tourists this time of year.

Just be careful that you follow the trail markers and head back to the Pinnacle Meadow parking lot or you will have a long walk back from the main Pinnacle parking lot.
