Description

The High Peaks Viewpoint offers sweeping views of the surrounding area, as well as prime viewing for California Condors throughout the day. The California Condors can be seen soaring all around you, and if you are lucky, they might even take a break and perch on the rocks above you in this location. The surrounding High Peaks area also offer climbing opportunities for rock climbers. It is one of the highlights of Pinnacles National Park.

Half-Day Run: Access via the High Peaks Trail.
