We hiked a 6 mile loop from the Peaks View parking over dry streambed and then through a riparian area to the Bear Gulch day use area. From there we hiked up Condor Gulch, which had spectacular views of the High Peaks area. At the intersection with the High Peaks trail we turned right (east) and descended toward the Old Pinnacles trail, where we made a right turn (southeast) and hiked about a mile back to the Peaks View parking lot to close our loop.
