Pinnacles National Park is a small, recently-upgraded Monument. The hiking trails here take visitors through this 26,000 acre hidden gem full of caves, lakes, California Condors, and strange rocky formations. This park features fantastic day hiking trails, campgrounds, and a fascinating geologic history – along with gorgeous wildflower displays in the spring and early summer — a perfect road trip from San Francisco or Los Angeles!

Be careful to plan properly: there are east and west entrances to the park. It's a HUGE drive from one to another

Should You Hike Here?

With recent wildfire damage and ongoing waves of COVID-19 infections and restrictions, National Forest, National Park, and other public land closures, restrictions, or social distancing guidelines may be in-effect.

If infection rates are on the rise, please do your best to remain local for your hikes. If you do travel, please be mindful of small gateway communities and avoid as much interaction as you can. Also remember to be extra prepared with supplies so you don't have to stop somewhere outside your local community for gas, food, or anything else.

Please be sure to contact the local land management agency BEFORE you head out, as these conditions are likely to change without enough notice for us to fully stay on top of them. Thanks, and stay safe!
