Pinnacles National Park – Old Pinnacles Trail   1 comment

We hit the gate when it opened … so we could hike in the cool of the morning. This is not a park to visit in the heat of July! We stopped by the Visitor’s Center (you were supposed to pay there on the way in) … but it was closed. Just the yearlings and the wild turkey to keep up company!

We drove on and parked at the Moses Spring Trailhead. We took the Old Pinnacles Trail across the dry stream bed, and then crossed the bridge to take the trail towards the Bench. We walked a couple of hours; we didn’t do the big climb. I think you’ll agree that the hike was a good thing, though!
