This guide is for those with limited time to hike Pinnacles National Park, or for those who want to sample only the easiest or most popular trails. This first edition of Best Easy Day Hikes Pinnacles National Park was extracted from our more comprehensive guide about our newest national park (January 10, 2013), Hiking Pinnacles National Park, published in March 2015. The park straddles two counties, San Benito and Monterey, in the southern portion of the Gabilan Range ecoregion, which is part of California’s Central Coast Range. The park sits 80 miles south of San Francisco Bay and 40 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean and the Monterey Peninsula, a world-renown tourist destination.
