The 3.37-mile trail to The Pinnacle follows an old logging road for most of its length. From the parking area, take the straight-ahead road, which is blocked by an iron gate to secure the area from vehicle traffic. Continue on the well-defined road and choose the left option some 2 miles into the hike. You will arrive on an open grassy ridge about 1 mile later. Don’t stop on the wide ridge – reaching the actual Pinnacle requires locating and following the narrow trail through the rhododendron bushes at what appears to be the end of the line. The short, rocky trail leads to the actual Pinnacle, which offers panoramic views of Sylva and the Scotts Creek valley.
