Park Brochure

Park brochures are available in a variety of formats including audio described and text only.

Trails

Because much of the park's terrain is steep and rocky, trail access for visitors with mobility impairments is limited. A section of the Bench Trail has recently been hardened and graded for wheelchair access. This gently rolling trail passes through oak woodlands and offers views of the High Peaks rock formation. The trailhead is at the Peaks View Picnic Area near the east entrance of the park.

On the west side, the Chaparral area near the west entrance offers views of Pinnacles’ most spectacular geological formations directly from or near the parking area. A new accessible trail called the Prewett Point Trail leaves from the West Pinnacles Contact Station. The trail is just under a mile in length and offers panaromic views of the High Peaks and the Balconies Cliffs.
