Pinnacle Park Trail

Pack a lunch and bring a camera to make a day of this vigorous 7-mile roundtrip hike through 1,000-acre Pinnacle Park.

The 3.37-mile trail to The Pinnacle follows an old logging road for most of its length. The top of Pinnacle Bald can be seen by looking from Sylva to the north just above the tree line. Sturdy, comfortable shoes are recommend for this moderately difficult hike which features significant elevation gain and a rocky, uneven road. Summer and fall hikers should keep an eye out for snakes.
