Pinnacle Peak is a Scottsdale staple! The views are awesome, but this is usually a very busy trail. Week days are best. A bit narrow, single file often, and can be a bit steep in places. We usually go half-way up and return for a 2-3 mile walk . Can walk through to the other side, but an issue if... More

Awesome views. So many athletes out there for a work-out as well as tons of people just enjoying the views and hikes with their friends and families.

I am used to walking on fairly flat terrain so found this an enjoyable challenge. The views are amazing and there are lots of places to stop and catch your breath and just look around.

Super fun hike. It was pretty crowed as we were there on a school holiday, but still doable. Lots of runners which makes you have to step aside quite a bit. I would say it is a moderate hike. Definitely not easy, but not the most difficult either. The views are so beautiful. Lots of great photo taking spots.

This park has an excellent hike for up and downhill and good views for the duration of the hike. It is one way hike so if you get to the trailhead it's back the same way. Very busy hill sometimes but guess that's because it's a good hike.

Pinnacle Peak Hike is beautiful. The first time we did this hike we didn't have enough water because our instructions said it was 1.75 miles what they didn't say that it was both ways! You go 1.75 miles to the end of the trail and turn around and go back. Going back is were you get hot and tired. We... More

We like to walk and loved this hike. We were a bit worried but it was a great first hike for us. We took it slow and the views were amazing. Would recommend the Pinnacle for all levels of hikers that have never been to Arizona. Slow and steady and you will find it to be a great late afternoon... More

My husband and I do quite a bit of hiking in our state parks, etc. but were a bit unprepared for desert hiking. Bring water! It's a challenge with several ups and downs and even on a 'cool' day (70s) we got pretty hot.

This is a very nice trail and relatively easy for beginners. There is parking available, as well as restrooms and friendly park staff. The trail reaches the top, proceeds down the other side, and up and down again. It was too much for us to do the whole thing, but the first "top" is an easy climb. A walking stick... More
