The route is snowed-in from mid-November to April most years, but can be snowshoed.
Lots of hikers use this trail and the run up is a tough climb. Coming down is a technical and fast downhill with lots of rocks and roots. Tread carefully and enjoy!
Park in the lower Stowe Pinnacle parking lot and work your way up through the forest to the Pinnacle. The trail is steep in parts with a few rocky sections where some scrambling is required. Follow the blue blazes for a mile where the trail splits - head left to the Stowe Pinnacle Meadow and up a steep set of stairs to the Pinnacle itself. Swing round the back of the Pinnacle and then up to see an amazing view of the Lamoille Valley and Green Mountains.
