Haven't been hiking very many places but this trail seemed nicely "groomed" with still having the true hiking feel with some rocks and very steep edges, a pretty good incline right off and quite a bit of up and down hill. We took our time with a couple stops and photos so only had time to mosey up just to... More

The trails are will maintained. The bathrooms are clean and the grounds are spotless. Only complaint would be that it is a little crowded. Otherwise a great hike, 2 miles in, 2 miles out. up and down 2 peaks. A bit steep in places but with the steps it is managable for most adlults and older children. I am not... More

Great place to hike, with spectacular views. Close to my home, never too busy on the weekdays. Clean, not too exhausting, good workout.

Looking for an activity nearby given limited time in Scottsdale and come across Pinnacle Peak Park on tripadvisor. A short drive from down and and off we went - outstanding way to get an appreciation of the beauty of the local area. Great exercise, brilliant scenery and certainly something which can be undertaken by people of varying abilities - pace... More

We were looking for a short hike due to the threat of rain. This hike was a very pleasant surprise. Beautiful plant life along the entire trail, great scenery including some homes, golf courses, desert and other peaks and lots of rock outcroppings. We only did the pinnacle peak portion and did not continue on to the other peak. I... More

It is a moderate hike and definitely worth the effort. The scenery is beautiful, and the trails are very well kept. Plan on doing it again soon.

Great hike with a wide path. We loved the views of mountains near and far. Stunning views of the valley. Hit by a small rainshower we did not complete the trail. Remember to drink even though traveling in winter months. The frist quarter of mile is the most strenuous as it involves hiking up a steep path.

The trail can be busy sometimes but gives beautiful views of the area. I would keep my eye for snakes if I was a tourist,don't play with them it is dangerous! Bring plenty of water.Wear good hiking shoes no flip flops and a camera.Don't forget the sun screen and maybe a hat depending on what time of the year.

The path is very well defined and fairly wide. Loved the fact there are a lot of signs along the way pointing out the names of various cactus. The views to the north and of the valley are spectacular as is of the ritzy homes and golf course below. When you get about 45 minutes into the hike there will... More

We took Uber from our hotel to the Pinnacle State Park for a hike! Was great for beginners. Approx. 3 miles. Take a bottle of water. Was low 70's for our hike. next time may try Camelback, but this for our first time hiking in The Mountains. great choice!
