Meeting Point

Visitor's Center at the Pinnacles East Entrance. There is a $5 entrance fee. If you are late, you could try meeting us at the Bear Gulch Visitor Center further into the park.
We will hike from the Visitor's Center along Bench Trail; Bear Gulch Trail; Condor Gulch Trail; High Peaks Trail; Bear Gulch Caves Trail and then back to the Visitor Center. You can choose to take the shuttle back if you are tired. We should be back early to allow campers to set up their tents. Bring lots of water as it could get hot. Binoculars in case we have a Condor sighting.

    great hike, perfect weather, the caves are fun, the length of the hike just right but we earned extra mileage or bonus round that made it an even better work-out
