Hike Pinnacle Park in Sylva by Brian Whitener

If you’re looking for a challenging place for hiking in Western NC with rewarding views from the summit then look no further than Pinnacle Park in Sylva NC. Pet friendly trails in the Smoky Mountains are hard to find but the trails here are indeed pet friendly. This protected conservation land is an old watershed for the town of Sylva NC. There is the main trail system that leads to the Pinnacle as well as a lower loop trail that would make for an easy stroll as you weave your way through the forest floors and over many creek crossings.  Remnants of the town water supply still remain and make this a very interesting place for a hike in the smoky mountains.
