Pinnacle NAP Activities

The "Pinnacle" is open to the public from sunrise to sunset. As a natural area preserve its facilities are sparse. There are picnic tables near the swinging bridge at the entrance and at the fisherman's shelter in the lower parking area. Dug-out toilets are located in the lower parking area. There are no trash cans or dumpsters in the preserve, so please please don't litter. Whatever you "pack in, pack out" and dispose of properly. Litter of all kinds - not just bottles, cans, and wrappers, but fish hooks, fishing line, bait containers, etc. - is hazardous to wildlife and an eyesore. Make an effort to keep the preserve as natural and beautiful as possible.

Hiking (6 miles of trails)
Fishing (Stocked with trout. Appropriate license and stamps are required)
Canoeing
Kayaking (Determined by American Whitewater to be a class I-III section)

Photography
