Meetatthe Park Office at the start of the trail. Note that this is a fitness hike - our pace is around 3 miles per hour, making it more strenuous than it would be if taken at a more leisurely pace.

Configuration: out and back
Distance: 3.5 miles
Elevation gain: around 1,300 feet
Facilities: restrooms, water


Here's a trail mapof the main trail, and info from the City of Scottsdale website follows:

The Sierra Club rates the 150-acre Pinnacle Peak as a moderate hike with an elevation gain of approximately 1,300 feet. The trail has a very smooth tread with a number of ups and downs over the course of the 1.75 mile trail (one way). It is not a loop trail so you come back over the same trail. High point on the trail is 2,889', the lowest point is 2,366', and the elevation at the trailhead is 2,570'.

Warning: we live in a desert where you WILL sweat out a lot of water very quickly trying to keep your body cool. Even though we are leaving early in the morning you still need to bring water with you. There is no formula for how much water you will need so ALWAYS err on the side of caution.

NOTE: every hike involves a certain level of risk, which you must take on completely. I am a volunteer organizer, not a hike guide of any sort. You must think ahead, gauge your ability,bring the things you will need, and be aware that something could go wrong.
