Hike to the Pulpit and Pinnacle under the Full Pink Moon
Watch the moonrise from the Pinnacle.
Please arrive by 4:30pm for a 4:45pm departure. As we will need to make it up to the Pinnacle by sunset, the group will leave on time. Please plan accordingly. Come and watch the full moon rise from the Pinnacle! April’s Full Moon, the Full Pink Moon, heralds the appearance of the pink moss, or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers. 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. Moonrise is at 7:37pm and sunset is at 7:55pm. 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 cloudy conditions cancels.
