There are two Pinnacle Peaks in Washington. This is the one in the Tatoosh Range near Mt. Rainier.
This is a short [3.5 miles round trip], but strenuous hike [1050 ft elevation gain]. The view from the top, though, makes all that sweat worthwhile.
You will need sturdy boots. A walking stick or trekking poles will be useful.
Cost: $15 for each car (Mt. Rainier entrance fee) + $15 for gas, if a passenger.
