This very short, flat and narrow, unmarked dirt trail is as rich in views as it is poor in challenge. It’s too convenient to the West Pinnacles Visitor Contact Station to miss as you drive into the park, and it is spectacular at sunset. At the time of publication, this portal to stunning views was slated for improvement per the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). If ever a hike in the park epitomized “short and sweet,” this unmarked trail is it. Just 120 feet from the Visitor Contact Station, it is the most easily accessed trail, offering an unobstructed and stunning view of the unusual volcanic outcrop for which the park is named.
