Peaks View Day Use Area to Old Pinnacles Trailhead Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"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. The trail parallels the seasonal but generally dry, wide Chalone Creek on the west side until you cross a wooden footbridge to the east bank for the last 0.2 mile to the Old Pinnacles trailhead. If winter and spring have been reasonably generous with rainfall, the rocky Chalone creekbed can be a spectacle of deep blue bush lupine and brilliant golden-orange 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."
