A short 15 minute walk or hike to the lookout point overlooking a view of the city of Quesnel,BC and Pinnacles in a valley below. The pinnacles or hoodoos formed 12 million years ago when molten lava flowed over the earth's surface and cooled in flat basalt layers over older layers of rock and ash. The Ice Age followed, and when the ice receded, melt-water streams eroded the valley. Just know that you're not able to walk out on the pinnacles anymore as people have fallen off and died. The WHOLE lookout area is gated off now but people still dont follow park rules and try to walk out. Great scenery and great for picnics with many picic table sites available.
The park is located 8 km form downtown Quesnel. Off highway 97, beside the Fraser River in dowtown Quesnel, take the bridge over into west Quesnel and the park can be accessed via Pinnacles Road.

UpsideNice views DownsideNot a great cardio building hike, even when you follow the trail a couple kms up the valley. CommentGood place to take friends and family who may be visiting from out of town.
