Description-Not in Guidebook-
The 1.6 mile Twin Pinnacles Trail starts beside the Visitor Center and meanders past Little Pinnacle and Big Pinnacle, with incredible views from the highest points in the park, before looping back and returning to the Visitors Center. Grab a Twin Pinnacles visitors guide at the Visitors Center to learn a little history and about the plants and animals that inhabit this area.
While there are many small blocks and fun craggy sections here, please tread lightly and respect the flora and fauna. The boulders along the trail are mainly chossy, and what blocks are not chossy will surely covered in beautiful mossy patches, lichens, and plants. Visitors and park employees would like it to stay this way.
If you are going to scramble around, please do so carefully! Some sections of the pinnacles have a few fun, easy climbs on the exposed weathered stone. Enjoy the area, and for more avid climbing pursuits, please opt to head downhill from the same parking area to the wonderful boulderfields of the LRT.
We have opted not to list any specific climbing here to avoid further impact.
Getting ThereAfter entering the park, follow the signs to the Visitor Center, marked "VC" on the signs, approximately 4 miles to the top of Haw Orchard Mountain...this is the same parking for the Listening Rock Trail. Follow the steps and walkway up to the Visitors Center, where the well marked trailhead is located to the left of the building. To get to the Little Pinnacle area, turn left at the loop junction at .1 miles and follow another .3 miles to the beautiful views.
