Very nice 4 mile round trip hike up 500 ft each way. Well groomed trail, popular and good footing along the way. Moderate intensity due to elevation change and steps, but no hiking poles are necessary. Great views of golf course and expensive homes along the way as well as labeled species of various indigenous cactus, shrubs.

Parking lot fills up early for hikers and runners. We went during the off season and the lot was nearly full at 10am. The hike has magnificent views of the surrounding territory and the trails are well maintained.

Great hike, moderate but can get a good work out with your pace.You can stop if don't want to go all the way. Views are nice. It is busy and lots of runners so you need to watch for them. Bathroom at the bottom, remember water, it is Arizona!

This is a great hike--not too difficult. Long but you can decide at any time to turn back. You can also go at your own pace, fast or slower. Plus it's pretty. Only set back, it can be crowded.

Loved this hike. My first time. I am an avid exerciser. Not the hardest hike but nice enough for something different. Only downside is that there were a lot of people and sometimes a narrow trail so hard to run it without stopping.

Took my elderly parents. No dogs allowed. Easy trail with clean bathroom at start. Can make it as long as you want. Just start tracking back when tired

Our family hiked Pinnacle Peak in January. The trail is well landscaped and crafted. The hike is not as challenging as Tom's Thumb nor Camelback, but offers nice views and a nice experience.

This is a great trail with beautiful views! The walk goes up, then down into what's called the saddle and then back up. Not an easy hike but well worth it.

This hike was not too easy and not too strenuous. There is a good bit of ups and down, but overall this is a great hike for families. The views were awesome! A little crowded, but that was the only downside

Headed to Pinnacle Peak Park at around 11 am on a week day. It was busy, had to park down the hill, but certainly not too many people to enjoy the hike. Path is clearly marked, public washrooms available at the beginning in the Visitors Centre. We saw several volunteers maintaining the paths and park in general which I thought... More
