The trail can be accessed from Hamburg Reservoir parking lot by taking Reservoir Road uphill past the Windsor Furnace site and the Hamburg Reservoir itself before entering the woods to run uphill alongside Furnace Creek in a hemlock forest.
At the top, it meets the AT near an open grassy field used as a helipad. Heading to the right on the AT will take one to the Pinnacle.
