    When you are 1/2 through your water it is time to turn around.

    Many Eagle Scout projects have helped keep trail in great shape. Check out plaque at entrance this June and thank the scouts, John Loleit, & friends of Pinnacle Peak!

    It's not a loop so don't make the mistake of continuing past the peak - you'll end up on the next mountain.

    It's a super-easy hike. It is about a mile to the peak. Not pooch friendly, sadly - but a nice hike to get outside for a bit.

    Come here early. The park is open from dawn to dusk. Also, allow at least two hours to walk the entire trail.

    When people pass you on this trail, use it as motivation to train harder.

    Get there early to find parking! Take a water bottle or a camel pack because the trail is 3.5 miles! I promise you'll be thirsty!

    Beautiful trail, not dog friendly, go early to get a parking spot. You can make this easier by turning around at the first peak or you can continue down the other side to another trail-allow 2hrs.

    Tough hike since it's pretty much non stop. You can make it easier by stopping now and then. Lots of water ia recommended.

    This trail is maintained with the help of Boy Scout Eagle projects. There will soon be a plaque to show who and how many.
