AAA Editor Notes

The Pinnacles are along Wheeler Creek Canyon near the e. boundary of Crater Lake National Park. The formations are spires of fused pumice and scoria; some rise 200 feet above the canyon floor. Other spires and fluted columns eroded from soft volcanic material can be seen in Castle Creek Canyon, Godfrey Glen and Annie Creek Canyon.
Crater Lake National Park admission $15 (per private vehicle for a 7-day pass); $10 (per person arriving on foot, bicycle or motorcycle).
Hours: Park daily 24 hours (weather permitting). The northern entrance road usually opens mid-June and Rim Drive usually opens early July; both remain open until first heavy snowfall. Visitor center hours vary by location and season.
