A nice ridge hike with an incredible payoff.

Description

From the intersection with the Indian Fort Trail contour south and then east along a bench to an open saddle. From the saddle, climb up to the prominent knob over some rocky steps and then wind through small pines along the ridge crest to a sudden and amazing overlook. Take in the view before retracing your steps to the saddle where you can continue down the same trail or take the Lookout Trail deeper into the forest.

Super easy hike up from the parking lot, which was heavily trafficked. The East Pinnacle trail was more deserted, though by no means empty. 1.1mi
