Met friends at Pinnacle Peak Park for a first-time hike (for me) at the Park.  I was surprised and somewhat overwhelmed at the similarities of this Park to that of Camelback Mountain.  A friend mentioned “Pinnacle Peak Park “is” the Camelback Mountain of North Scottsdale.” The hike is considered moderate, with very well-groomed trail, 1.75 miles one-way.  WARNING! VERY POPULAR! VERY CROWDED! Following are photos I managed to capture prior to the hike. I really enjoyed this hike; although I would prefer to hike mid-week rather than on a weekend. The views are spectacular! pinnacle peak 4  pinnacle peak 3 pinnacle peak hike pinnacle peak 5 pinnacle peak 6 pinnacle peak 2
