Dillon Pinnacles Trail Professional Review and Guide

It was a fairly easy trail with a few up and down climbs. It was rated as moderate. The view of the Pinnacle were okay, but we weren't that close. The view of Blue Mesa was very nice and the weather couldn't have been better. We had hiked down in the Black Canyon the day before, so this hike paled in comparison. A good hike for a novice.

Great place to explore and if you're ultra quiet you can see herds of bighorn sheep.
