The Pinnacles trails offer gorgeous lookouts at West Pinnacle, Indian Fort, Buzzard’s Roost, Eagle’s Nest, and East Pinnacle. They’re so beautiful in every season, you’ll have to come back!
The hikes to each lookout vary in difficulty. Starting from the main trailhead, they all branch from a trail that is initially uphill. For first timers, we recommend East Pinnacle.
