Take time to drive the 4 miles up to the Pinnacle Overlook, followed by a short walk up a slightly winding paved path (I did see an accessible entrance for those who can't do the stairs at the start of the path). At the top...More

It is beautiful there. However, not sure it is worth coming that far out of your way to see. Maybe wait until your travels bring you closer.
