Point of Interest Details

Eroded Tower

Would you like to see an amazing rock?

The Pinnacle Rock is the formation to see!

The Pinnacle Rock has been here for a very long time. It’s like the leaning tower of Pisa. One time the stream of water flowed where the path is and started to break up the rocks. Water froze in the joint cracks to break up the rocks. The stream eroded the rocks away and the pinnacle rock was born.

Now the stream flows on the other side, and we get to enjoy Pinnacle Rock.
