Just wanting to shake off the stiffness from Mount Wrightson hike a few days before, I started from the parking lot on Pinnacle Peak thinking I'd just do the short Arrowhead Tr. Again I reached Arrowhead Point (Peak #1), which I call "flag hill," in a stout wind, this time from the west not the north as before. The American flag was hanging on by its finger tips. Going clockwise, I crossed west over to the lower Peak #2, then downhill quickly on the long switchback to the ramadas.

Without hesitation I struck off for Peak #3 on the north, crossing the pedestrian bridge, then west on the Coachwhip to the start of the Cholla Loop, then up to the top by sunset and down the switchbacks on the east to the parking lot again. The trails seemed very busy for a Wednesday evening.

All three peaks are about the same elevation. My GPS had Peak #1 being higher by 47' than Peak #2 and 19' higher than #3. Got some moderate mileage and elevation. But can't say, though, that the stiffness in my legs was helped much.
