Ranger programs are a fun way to enhance your experience at Pinnacles National Park. Programs are generally offered on weekends (at both the East and West sides of Pinnacles) from mid February through the end of May. Evening programs are offered on the east side of the park at Pinnacles Campground Friday and Saturday evenings. Contact the Interpretation and Education office (831)389-4486 ext. 267.

All ranger programs are FREE. Upon your arrival to the park, ask a park ranger or consult one of the Ranger Activity Boards located outside the Pinnacles Visitor Center, the Bear Gulch Nature Center, or the West Pinnacles Visitor Contact Station for the day's opportunities.

Special programming, including the West Pinnacles Speaker Series, night hikes and other unique Pinnacles events are also scheduled through out the year. Please check the Schedule of Events page to find out if they are occuring during your visit!
