I've been up there two times now and I only passed about a half dozen people each time. Perhaps most people don't care for a long, warm (hot?) hike up a nondescript trail/road through the chaparral. It's more for us dedicated peak-baggers than your average tourist I guess. But nice views of the surrounding countryside and really gives you a birds-eye view of Pinnacles National Park.

On the way to Oregon, stopped by Pinnacles to officially mark it as a new park. Took a few hours to do the trail to the park highpoint. Easy trail for fit hikers, fantastic views from summit at only 3300'! Would not do this in the middle of summer though.

First time was in high school (1973). In 1980 via a traverse of Mt. Defiance. I even got my then non-hiker future wife to the top in the early 90's. The real challenge will be to get my video-gamer son (11) to the top this spring.

Nice hike from Bear Gulch on a sunny spring day. Did the High Peaks route on return to check out the 'pinnacles' and to make it a complete day of hiking. The outhouse on the summit is pretty beaten up and in need of repair. Suggest anyone doing this is spring avoid the weekends when crowds overrun the Bear Gulch area (99% only go up to the reservoir through the cave).

We were supposed to climb Junipero Serra but the Military had closed the only access road. After hours of driving around trying to find the non-existent alternative to the peak we settle on Pinnacles. What a great alternative to have. I was amazed by the park. The Bear Gulch Caves were incredible. The view from the peak was great and the trail was in great shape. Not too many people and the weather was fantastic. I can't wait to head back.

Easy hike. Nice view. Didn't encounter any soul beyond the Reservoir. No one else was on the summit except for me and my buddy.

Climbed a few days after winter storms. The caves were amazing, the water was thundering through them. Hit South Peak also. Clear day, views were stunning.

The first time I've hiked up to North Chalone Peak. Great views! The manzanitas are blooming right now and attracting lots of bees. Every time I walked by one I could hear loud buzzing before I saw the bees. Pretty neat!

Have climbed this one many times, usually by the standard route from Bear Gulch. Be sure to do the High Peaks trail while you are in the area. That's where the best scenery is in this park.
