Pinnacle Rock State Park

Rock at Pinnacle Rock State Park, Bramwell, WV, Mercer County, Bluestone Region
Pinnacle Rock State Park

A tower of sandstone long known as Pinnacle Rock provides a classroom for history, geology, and topography at Pinnacle Rock State Park in the valley of the Bluestone River. The geologic force that uplifted the rock have also created the dramatic panoramas that unfold as hikers ascend to an overlook at the summit. The pinnacle had been a popular local picnic area through the early 1900s and was purchased by the state in 1938 and developed as a roadside park along the newly completed highway US-52. In the late 1960s, the park was expanded to include 15-acre Jimmy Lewis Lake. Hiking, biking, fishing, and boating are the principal recreation venues accommodated at the park.

Directions: Pinnacle Rock State Park is located near Bramwell, WV, northwest of Bluefield, WV, in Mercer County, on the verge of the Bluestone Region and the southwestern reach of the Hatfield & McCoy Region in southern West Virginia (WV).
