Description

The trail starts off from the north side of the cell tower at the stack of rocks on the ground, you'll also see some flagging tape. Follow the trail into the woods where you'll find some short technical climbs and lots of deadfall to duck or hoop over. The will eventually pop out at the edge of a cliff where you'll have an amazing view of the surrounding area. If you look down and to your right you'll see the Dorion tower also known as the pinnacle.

From the lookout, you can either turn around and head back or scramble your way down the cliff following the markers to get to the base of the pinnacle, which is very challenging and is only recommended to confident hikers.
