Trail shared by David Smith

This trail climbs to a large rock, The Pinnacle.

Description

This trail follows yellow blazes. Starting from the southern terminus (at the large boulder on Shaw Pond Trail), this trail climbs a series of switchbacks up the hill. It turns right and descends down a steep run-off. There's a small, easy-to-miss spur (on the right) that leads you to an area just below Pinnacle Rock. The trail continues down a few more small switchbacks, then comes back onto Shaw Pond Trail. A left on Shaw Pond Trail will take you back to the parking area.
