Experience both sides of Pinnacle Peak on this trip which will be a double ascent. We will hike from the South Trail to the lookout cabin  and down the Cal Magnuson Trail on the opposite side then do the reverse!  This is a great training trip for those looking to gain some elevation at a relatively close to home destination with a new fire lookout! 

Please be mindful of the posted pace before signing up. If you struggle keeping a consistent 2 mph pace hiking uphill, consider choosing another trip.
