Spring is the best time of year to hike here during the day. If you like rocks and condors.

Bring your own food :) some sundries, beer, frozen foods, but not much just canned & dry goods. The 6 mile loop High Peaks via the caves is great for big views and mild to strenuous hiking.
 
Beautiful! Not very crowded.

Use the East Entrance south of Hollister & Tres Pinos.

The link on foursquare for the campground location is inaccurate and lacking. Go to the website for the best info. http://www.nps.gov/pinn/index.htm

Beautiful hiking, but bring lots of water, it gets very hot in the summers.

Great cave adventure --- good for both adults + kids . Morning hiking might be the best before the hot sun emits its full power. Remember to bring your own flash light -- it's a must!

Stop by the Visitor's Center, get your passport book stamped, and stock up on ice for your camelbak! :)

Do the 8 mile loop (starting on the east entrance and ending at the caves). There is some rock scrambling but overall is moderate.

Check ahead to ensure amazing caves are open (closed periodically for bats). Rest/lunch at reservoir. Great campsite!

Did not seem well run. Unfortunate that the trails are not dog friendly. Campsites were unorganized.

Condor Gulch Trail > High Peaks Trail > Bear Gulch Trail is definitely a strenuous 6-7mi loop but worth every step. Stunning views and with a few sections of steps embedded in the rocks.

Beautiful national park. If camping during winter, time don't forget to bring thick blankets or you'll freeze! There's hiking, climbing, and even caves (headlamps required for these). Enjoy!
