Pinnacle Rock State Park

6407 Coal Heritage Road

Located along Route 52, near historic Bramwell in Mercer County, Pinnacle Rock State Park is one of the more interesting day use parks operated by the West Virginia State Park system.

Towering above the rugged mountains of southeastern West Virginia, Pinnacle Rock is an unusual sandstone formation reaching 3,100 feet above sea level. This park provides a relaxing picnic area in an unusual scenic setting.

The park was opened in 1938 when the Conservation Commission purchased a 26 acre tract of land surrounding the rock. Parking areas, walkway and a large picnic shelter with a stone fireplace were then constructed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in conjunction with the state of West Virginia. Today there are nearly 400 acres which include Jimmy Lewis Lake (seasonally stocked with trout) located nearby within the park boundary.

We hiked these trails until we couldn't go any firther. It is a beautiful place for a family outing. Next time I'll be taking a picnic lunch for the family. We loved it!😊
