Intro Lesson: Rochester’s so-called “pinnacle hills” include the highest point in Rochester, Pinnacle Hill, at 749 feet bove sea level; Highland Hill (location of Highland Park Reservoir); Mout Hope; and Cobb’s Hill. Pinnacle Hill was originally named Monroe Hill. A fifth hill, Oak Hill, was located at the current site of the University of Rochester’s River Campus.
Pinnacle Hill offers a wonderful view of the environs south of the city, and in the winter months the view of downtown Rochester is hard to beat.
