Back to Pinnacle…

Shift Modern Cyclery - Be Ready To Ride.

The weekend warrior is back! After not doing any working out for weeks due to an overabundance of well meaning excuses it was time to get back in the woods. Trails of choice would be our own local playground, Pinnacle Mountain State Park. We opted for a trail run/walk/crawl/drag-our-body workout starting at the eastern terminus of the Ouachita Trail near the parks’ visitor center.

“Leaf-Off” is still one of my favorite times of the year in Arkansas. Everything is so open and clear. The cool is back in the air now and it makes the senses so intense. Remember also, no bugs, snakes or any of the other reasons that might keep you from the woods. So put a coat on and head on out!
