It's a steep drive, but once you're on top, the view is wonderful. You can see south along the chain of mountains. This is a rare place in each of the three states it's in. Technically, the Pinnacles is in Virginia, but you reach it from Kentucky.

Directions: Pinnacle road leaves from the park Visitor Center.
