"A Hiker's Paradise"

Pinnacle Peak Park attracts both the serious hiker and those out for a bit of outdoor rejuvenation. It's a great way to experience the vegetation and climate of the area and to take in some beautiful scenery.

My family of five took the walk from the Four Seasons Resort to that connects to the park and then my husband and 10- and 12-year-old hiked up Pinnacle Peak while my 6-year-old and I enjoyed some time exploring things at ground level. We all had a great time! It's a beautiful area and the hike is great if you are reasonably in shape. Bring water and leave yourself time to get up and back before dark and you're good to go! The trail is smooth and has absolutely lovely views of the area, although keep in mind it is not a loop trail, so you need to go up and then back down the same way you went up. Along the way are small signs with information on the vegetation if you are into that. While we trekked from the Four Seasons to the Peak, there is plenty of nearby parking if you are coming from somewhere else. I have heard it's best to park on the street and not in the lot as it is almost always full, and that it does get crowded on the weekends. That said, it is most definitely worth your time to explore this wonderful gem and take in the scenery and beauty that this area offers! See you at the top!!

"Great desert hike for families"

My family climbed this peak while staying at the nearby Four Seasons resort. Pinnacle Peak is 3,171 feet in elevation and the 150-acre park that surrounds the peak is a great place for families to get outside and hike or rock climb. While there is a ¾ mile trail connecting the resort to Pinnacle Peak Park, my family opted to hop in the car and park closer to the main trailhead so that the kids would have more energy for the climb up the peak.  The trail is popular with a wide variety of users including serious trail runners and families with children enjoying some outdoor time together. Views are impressive as the 1.75 mile trail climbs to a maximum elevation of 2,889 feet and my kids delighted in spotting lizards sunning themselves on rocks and a cottontail sneaking out for a midday snack.
