Pennsylvania: The Pinnacle and Pulpit Loop

May 14, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join Gossamer Gear Trail Ambassador Dan Bortz for his Birthday Hike! I’ll be dog-tired finishing up 3rd shift that morning, but I can’t not hike on my birthday. This 8.5 mile loop (roughly +1300′ of elevation) will take us past two of the best vistas on the AT in Pennsylvania: The Pinnacle and Pulpit Rock. Even though these vistas sit below 2000′, they both provide majestic views of the Pennsylvania farmland below. In typical PA fashion, the initial climb on the AT tests your sure-footedness with a barrage of ankle-twisting rocks. We will meet at the Hamburg Reservoir Parking Area at 8AM. The pace of this hike will be fairly quick, with a duration between 2.5 and 3 hours. All skill levels are welcome, but please be confident that you are in good health before attempting this hike. This event is being hosted by Berks-Lehigh Hiking and Backpacking Meetup, but non-members are welcome to RSVP via email ( Limit 12 hikers.
