The Sierra Club rates the 150-acre Pinnacle Peak as a moderate hike with an elevation gain of approximately 1,300 feet. The trail has a very smooth tread with a number of ups and downs over the course of the 1.75 mile trail (one way). It is not a loop trail so you come back over the same trail. High point on the trail is 2,889', the lowest point is 2,366', and the elevation at the trailhead is 2,570'.

Hiking and rock climbing will take you to spectacular views of the valley. Rock climbing, for experienced climbers with appropriate gear, is permitted in three areas of the park with a variety of routes and skill levels.

Amenities include an 90 space paved parking area (including 4 motorcycle parking spaces at the west end of the lot) restrooms, drinking fountain, ramada, and 4 picnic tables. The park is home to numerous native plants and animals. Hiker safety is important to us, so please read our Park Rules and Safety Information.
