Description

Begin at the western trailhead near the multiuse trail and climb up to a bench and contouring section of trail. Shortly after, you'll be negotiating a steep climb up to a saddle for the final push to the rounded knob that makes up the West Pinnacle. Traverse across the knob to the western overlook where you can see the town of Berea.
