Begin at the Bear Gultch Visitor Center in the Pinnacles National Monument. Then proceed up using the The Bear Gulch Trail to the Moses Spring Trail to the Chalone Peak Trail and return the same way you came.

Route Description

You begin at the Bear Gulch Visitors Center. Parking is a bear. LOL. Anyway, you then follow all the signs that say Reservoir or Chalone Peak. The Reservoir is beautiful. It will take about 1/2 hour to 40 min to reach there. This a great place to stop for a minute and contemplate the meaning of the universe.

Essential Gear

Water!!!! And a good pair of hiking shoes.
