Hiked in from the Meadow Spring parking area and did it combined with Mary's Rock. Much cooler day than the previous three days.
Did this one in conjunction with a hike to Mary's Rock. Easy, with lots of good views to the west.
Climbed over this on day 1 of a 4-day section hike of the AT. We started just below the summit at the Corbin Cabin parking area. We actually ran into a rattlesnake right next to the Pinnacles Picnic area. Nice overlook from the top.
Wake me when it's over.
On way to Mary's Rocks. Like many, I also was not sure which boulder group was the true summit.
Nice views up there, but I climbed eleven different rocks that I considered candidates for the true summit!
I've been over on two different backpack trips.
The views from the ridgetop are really nice. There was a big fire on the ridge to the west this day.
There were many different summits on this one to choose from. I tried them all I think with no definitive answer as to which was the highest.
Great spot for lunch.
In heavy rain.
On Veteran's Day, my wife and I hiked to The Pinnacle from Jewel Hollow Overlook. It was about 70 degrees. We saw that even 1,000 feet in elevation made a big difference in the foliage. There were still leaves on the trees on Oventop Mountain (less than 2,500 feet), but the trees on The Pinnacle were bare.
Not a single person on the trail on this misty cool day.
Hot hot Memorial Day. Nice leg stretcher. Good wildflowers along the way. Views were limited due to haze, but still nice.
Gorgeous day. About 60+ degrees, a small breeze, and plenty of sunshine. Fabulous day to be in the Shenandoah Mountains!
