Winter in Pinnacles National Park




Listen to the Big Blend Radio interview with Park Ranger Elizabeth Hudick, who discusses winter activities at Pinnacles National Park such as hiking and rock climbing, bird and wildlife watching, star gazing, and exploring caves and waterfalls.

Located along the San Andreas Fault in central California, Pinnacles National Park is of geological significance, and is known for its beautiful and diverse habitats that range from spectacular wildflowers to oak woodlands and chaparral scrub, caves and rock spires. The giant boulders you see at Pinnacles today were formed as a result of volcanic activity that occurred over 23 million years ago.

Enjoy hiking trails, rock climbing, exploring caves, star gazing, camping and bird watching. Keep your eyes open for a lucky glimpse of a California condor, as this park also manages a release site for captive bred California condors. Boasting a Mediterranean climate, the Park enjoys mild winters with moderate precipitation. Warm layers, and a light rain repellent jacket can help you stay warm and dry from rain and showers.
