Description

This sprawling outcrop sits atop a ridgeline and is prominent from Highway 14. It is labeled on the USGS 7.5 minute quad. It is the largest of the “pinnacles” areas, and offers a half dozen elegant spires.

Getting There

From Dayton (at the base of the eastern side of the mountains), follow Highway 14 for 52 miles to the Owen Creek Road on the right (5 miles after passing Burgess Junction). Follow this graded dirt road (four-wheel drive necessary) for about 1.5 miles. Turn right onto the Forest Service Road 220, which steeply ascends an open ridge and then descends the backside of the ridge. Park at the bottom of this descent, where the road levels out and an old jeep road branches off to the right.

From the pullout, hike about ½ mile cross-country through the open sagebrush meadows toward the Bear Rocks. Hiking time is approximately 15 minutes from your car.
