    A good workout, steady climb that wasn’t too hard. Very exposed so go when weather is cooler like October and November. Bring warm clothes for late afternoon when Sun goes down.

    Long hike with a loooong uphill and downhill. Uphill is grueling, but downhill is arduous, as the footing is very loose the whole way and on steep terrain.

    Kept stopping and taking pictures of different perspectives. I was able to leave right from my house and hike around today. I am eager to rock climb some day and explore other trails. Love pinnacles very much.

    Had to get there early to find parking. This was mid November and temps were at a high of 80. This area is hot and you will definitely need a lot of water. My preference would be to go counter clockwise so you’ll end up with the shade at the last portion of the loop. Some nice views at the peak. No sight of tarantulas or condors on this trip. The scenery is ok. It wouldn’t be fair to compare it to the more popular national parks. But its quiet and peaceful. Best to go during the winter months or early spring. I would not attempt it during the summer months, unless that’s your thing. The sun is my kryptonite.

    Great hike. Distance about 8.5 mi, Elevation about 2400 ft. (not 1253 ft as shown for the hike) Lots of wildflowers in spring. Loop can go either clock- or counter-clockwise. Perhaps clockwise is best. In the Bear Creek Caves most of the foot traffic goes uphill = clockwise on the loop. Also, uphill on Condor Gulch Tr can be very hot in the sun. Advice to non-locals ... Pinnacles is generally very hot in the summer. Check temperature forecast.
