This is an easy route for visitors with limited time or energy looking to begin a hike with a peek at the High Peaks on the western horizon before enjoying a bit of solitude on a shady, mostly flat trail. If winter and spring have been reasonably generous with rainfall, the rocky Chalone creek bed can be a spectacle of deep blue bush lupine and brilliant goldenorange California poppies. This hike has the option of being made even easier and shorter with a vehicle parked in the Old Pinnacles trailhead parking lot for a shuttle back to Peaks View Day Use Area.
