The Peshastin Pinnacles State Park is nice for hiking and popular with the regulars. Plenty of parking and a fee box. We box a State Park pass in advance so if you plan to go to a few state parks then it is a must to buy. Decent views but there are some power lines that run thru it.

This park is NOT your traditional family outing park of picnics and chasing butterflies (unless your a traditional climbing family :) ), if you stop by expecting tall trees, creeks and trails you will be sorely disappointed.

Way cool, but I can't believe they allowed power lines to be run right through the middle of the park. No way to get good photos unless you are a Electrical Utility CEO!

The rock formations are interesting to see up close and there are some great views both east and west from up high on the trails, as the park is located on the boundary between the forest and desert ecosystems between Leavenworth and Wenatchee. The trails could be better maintained, but the bathrooms were very good.

We went the wrong way and it was a bit hairy with our small children. Ask someone there which way to go.
