Dillon Pinnacles is located near the edge of the planning area boundary on the north side of US Highway 50 and the Blue Mesa Reservoir, and is adjacent to the West Antelope ACEC. These public lands are classified as crucial big game winter range. The physical geology of the ACEC contains portions of steep, highly dissected cliffs that form a highly visible and scenic backdrop for Blue Mesa Reservoir. The National Park Service maintains a heavily used hiking trail through this area.
