Pinnacle Rock State Park is a 400-acre landscape known for its unique rocky outcroppings, trout fishing, and geocaching community. Pinnacle Rock State Park offers over six miles of natural hiking trails, which means no pavement or crushed gravel.
Due to the nature of these trails, it's suggested that guests bring proper footwear for their hikes, as items like rocks and raised tree roots can present a bit of a challenge. Several of the paths here lead to Pinnacle Rock, from which you can get a great look at the entire surrounding area.
Visitors are welcome to take their canines for a hike but should remember to bring plastic bags in case their animal leaves something behind. Anglers can get out onto the Jimmy Lewis Lake, a 115-acre piece of water that's regularly stocked with trout.
Visitors looking to fish should pack up all necessary items for the sport as no rental services are offered. The state of West Virginia requires all fishers to have a valid state fishing license and stamps, both of which can be found online via the Pinnacle Rock State Park's website.
Canines are free to enjoy both the shoreline and the water, as long as they don't bother other guests. Something unique to Pinnacle Rock State Park is the historic town of Bramwell. Constructed in the midst of the Victorian era, this area was populated by millionaires looking to get away from city life.
Because of this, several of these so-called "coal baron" structures still exist today including several mansions and a general store. Tours only happen during the holiday season, but guests are still welcome to explore the town itself throughout the year.
A small museum and ice cream parlor are located here as well, the hours for which are found on the West Virginia State Parks' website. A children's playground is open to guests year round. Canines aren't allowed on the playground or inside of its adjacent restrooms.
