Herman Creek Pinnacles

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

The Herman Creek Pinnacles (Tom Kloster)
Wannabe pinnacles (Steve Hart)


The Herman Creek Pinnacles are odd basalt formations, originally chunks of the cliffs above that slid down in a landslide. They consist of brittle rock that often breaks, cascading down the surface to create an apron of talus.

In the woods nearby are other smaller pinnacle-like rocks.
