Access Issue: State Natural Area Details

Description

Because of the areas significant geological features, the Pinnacles land area is designated a state natural area. Natural areas have special rules so respect and observe all signs, postings, and other users. 50 ft limestone cliffs drop sharply down both sides forming a narrow ridge trail that requires great balance while hiking. Steep climbing trails lead up the sides of the rock and a cool stream flows at the formations base. Steep hiking and technical climbing are differentiated by the use of safety equipment, like ropes. Steep hiking is allowed. Need I say more?

Just to be clear, rock climbing is prohibited in this park. Even if it was allowed, it would not be a good idea since the rock is brittle. Dec 6, 2012
