Hike to the Pulpit and Pinnacle under the Full Blue Hunter's Moon (9 miles)
Watch the moonrise from the Pinnacle
COVID PROTOCOL CALLS FOR FACE COVERINGS WHEN UNABLE TO MAINTAIN A 6-FOOT SOCIAL DISTANCE. Please arrive by 3:15pm for a 3:30pm 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... October’s Full Moon, the Full Harvest Moon, is also a Blue Moon! 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 6:00pm and moonrise is at 6:21pm. 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. Also bring extra layers as we will be sitting at the Pinnacle for a while watching the moon rise. Rain or cloudy conditions cancels.
