Alpine Scramble - Pinnacle Peak

The approach to Pinnacle Peak is a quick and easy forest and then switch back trail to the saddle between Pinnacle and Plummer Peaks. The trail up to Pinnacle is at times hard to find, but follows a rock and scree route - careful for rockfalls (helmets recommend). The last few hundred feet require scrambling and easy rock climbing skills to reach the peak.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • The upper trail still had some patches of snow, but very little, occasionally covering the rocky trail.  

    The last section up to Pinnacle Peak is on loose rock and rock falls are a risk, so be aware and wear a helmet.

    Our group decided to use a rappelling rope to help on the decent from Pinnacle Peak  - there are good rocks to set up anchors.

Parking is tight, so get there early.  We were at the trailhead by 7am and found parking.
