The trail was great with stunning views of the landscape at both stops, Pulpit Rock & The Pinnacle.
Suggest wearing good shoes, it is very rocky and if you're a first timer I could see a sprained ankle coming out of the trip.
The directions given by Trails.com weren't very accurate and could have better pointed us in the right direction. Keep your eyes peeled for the white and blue markers along the trail.
The first part of the walk is almost straigh up hill, for about a mile where you will reach several large white structures, they look as if they house telescopes (i.e. dome shaped) and there is a sign marked by some astronimical society. You would think this very clear land marker would be listed on the directions it is not. After you have reached this point continue to follow to the right to get to Pulpit Rock.
After Pulpit Rock, returning to the trail, you will want to take the path on your right hand side. After walking this path for a 1/4 mile or less you will probably be confused, you will hit a big patch of rocks and see no markers. A path will be to your left though, if you walk out of the woods to the path and up the hill you will see a tower with some fenced in buildings at the top.
You will probably again feel confused as if you have hit a dead end, but start walking to your left through the rocks and you will begin to see your white markers and a more clearly defined pathway will emerge. You will be walking this path for an hour and a half to two hours.
Eventually you will come to a stacked pile of rocks, a pretty large pile. This is how you know you are almost to The Pinnacle and continue on past this for only a short bit.
When you come back down, if you are up for a challenge go back the way you came, otherwise make sure you stick to the right side white path. This a MUCH smoother path with less rocks and a more smooth trail for you to climb down.
