Pinnacle Natural Area Preserve

This 683-acre preserve is in the Clinch River valley, which contains the highest number of globally imperiled and vulnerable freshwater species in the United States. The waters in and around the preserve are globally known for their rich diversity of aquatic life. This preserve got its name from its towering dolomite spire that stands nearly 400 feet tall. Parking areas, hiking trails, and fishing opportunities in Big Cedar Creek are provided at this Tier I preserve in southwest Virginia.
