Balconies Trail

Be Prepared

At Pinnacles, a cool morning could quickly turn into a surprisingly hot day. Wear loose-fitting clothing, a hat, and sunscreen. In all seasons, expect temperatures to dip sharply at night. Check the weather forecast before your hike and plan accordingly.

Carry and drink at least one liter of water per person per hour of hiking. Water is not available on trails.
