Annual Meeting: Recap and Results!

We had a wonderful gathering at Miner's Leap Winery with Carsen & Mike Band providing us with live entertainment.  Welcome to our new members who came today!  It's always fun when you get a few MINI's and their owners together. :-)

We raised $455 dollars that we split in half between Best Friends Hurricane Efforts & Feeding America.  Both groups are working towards helping those struggling from Hurricanes Harvery & Irma.

Due to higher visitation since becoming a National Park they will probably be using their shuttle service to take visitors to the top.

Shuttle Schedule (Eastside Only)

Pinnacles National Park is pleased to offer visitors a free shuttle on weekends and most holidays. The shuttle only stops at the East Pinnacles Visitor Center and Bear Gulch. Weekends are especially busy between 10am and 3pm. Wait times for the shuttle can exceed one hour.


Pets are allowed in the picnic areas, parking lots and on paved roads. Your pet must be physically controlled on a six foot leash. Your pet should be with you at all times.

It is prohibited to leave pets unattended in a vehicle. Please keep in mind that temperatures at Pinnacles National Park can vary widely. Temperatures upwards in the 90's are common in the summer months. Cool, cloudy mornings can turn into surprisingly warm days, even in winter. Please do not leave your chained pet unattended, even in the campground.

Dogs, and other pets are prohibited on Park trails. Domestic pets leave a scent that may disrupt, or alter the behavior of the native wild animals Pinnacles protects. Pets may also attract predators or transmit diseases to fragile habitat while in the park.
