Hike to the Pulpit and Pinnacle under the Full Thunder Moon
Watch the moonrise from the Pinnacle.
Please arrive by 4:45pm for a 5:00pm departure. As we will need to make it up to the Pinnacle by sunset, the group will leave on time.
Come and watch the full moon rise from the Pinnacle! July's Full Moon, the Full Thunder Moon, was named due to the prevalence of thunder storms.
This is an 8 mile loop hike, starting at the Hamburg Reservoir parking lot and then going up to the Pulpit and Pinnacle for spectacular views of the rising full moon. Sunset is at 8:23pm and moonrise is at 8:25pm.
This is not a beginner's hike due to the ~1000' ascent, rocky terrain and nighttime conditions. Sturdy hiking boots are recommended. Bring a headlamp or flashlight, at least 2 liters of water and food/snacks. Rain or overly cloudy conditions will cancel the hike.
Hike / bike / on-water distance: 8 miles
Hike rating: C
Meeting place: Hamburg Reservoir parking lot, 420 Reservoir Road Hamburg, PA
