Long Description:
The Pinnacles Youth Park is 70-acre private park which is open to the public during daylight hours. Several trails exist to explore the rock formations. Grills, picnic tables and shelters are available. No fee is charged for entering the park but donations are accepted to maintain the park.

Silver Fork Creek and Kelly Creek formed the Pinnacles, a thin 75-foot high and 1,000 foot long Burlington limestone ridge. The pinnacles were formed as Silver Fork Creek doubled back on itself and these two streams crowded one another so closely that they left a precariously thin 75 foot high and 1000 foot long limestone ridge as a precipitous erosional remnant. There have been several breaches by erosion in the ridge creating several large perforations to form windows or natural arches.
