Herman Creek Pinnacles hike

Distance: 4.6 miles with 1,200 ft. gain

This is an easy hike to a grouping of basalt pinnacles. Begin at the Herman Creek Trailhead, and about one mile in, stay to the left at a trail junction, taking the Herman Creek Bridge trail. Pass over Herman Creek on a metal bridge and continue to the junction with the PCT. Just before the pinnacles, cross over a small creek and pause to look up: Pacific Crest Falls is high above in a narrow slot canyon. Just 0.2 miles ahead is a side trail of rock to the pinnacles. This makes a great break spot before either continuing to Dry Creek Falls, or to head back as we did, hoping to miss the oncoming heavy rain (we made it!).
