    Stop by the Visitor's Center, get your passport book stamped, and stock up on ice for your camelbak! :)

    Do the 8 mile loop (starting on the east entrance and ending at the caves). There is some rock scrambling but overall is moderate.

    Did not seem well run. Unfortunate that the trails are not dog friendly. Campsites were unorganized.

    Condor Gulch Trail > High Peaks Trail > Bear Gulch Trail is definitely a strenuous 6-7mi loop but worth every step. Stunning views and with a few sections of steps embedded in the rocks.

    Beautiful hiking, but bring lots of water, it gets very hot in the summers.

    Great cave adventure --- good for both adults + kids . Morning hiking might be the best before the hot sun emits its full power. Remember to bring your own flash light -- it's a must!

    The link on foursquare for the campground location is inaccurate and lacking. Go to the website for the best info. http://www.nps.gov/pinn/index.htm

    Use the East Entrance south of Hollister & Tres Pinos.

    We drove through Hollister and used the East Entrance off hwy 25. E & W entrances on Highway 146 do not connect through the park. Look at maps carefully especially if you wish to reach the campground

    Bring your own food :) some sundries, beer, frozen foods, but not much just canned & dry goods. The 6 mile loop High Peaks via the caves is great for big views and mild to strenuous hiking.

    Dear Mountain Gods, thank you for letting me finish my hike in one piece! :)

    For an easy trail that's also full of sites, take the Moises Spring Trail. It's only a 2.5 mi loop & you climb thru caves, see rock formations, and end at a breathtaking lake.

    Check ahead to ensure amazing caves are open (closed periodically for bats). Rest/lunch at reservoir. Great campsite!

    There are two parking lots, so take note which one you parked in, or it could cost you an extra 5 or more mile hike!

    Spring is the best time of year to hike here during the day. If you like rocks and condors.
