This is likely my favorite loop hike in the area ... and what better way to enjoy the crisp, winter air than by climbing a mountain?! This is a 9 mile loop hike, starting at the Hamburg Reservoir parking lot, first climbing to Pulpit Rock and then onward along the ridge to the Pinnacle for spectacular views of the Lehigh Valley from both locations. This is not a beginner's hike due to the 1000' ascent and very rocky terrain. If there is snow on the ground, microspikes or other traction devices will be mandatory. Bring a least 2L of water and lunch / snacks. Sturdy hiking boots are recommended, plus trekking poles if you prefer them. Steady rain or snow cancels.
Join us for a walk through Quakertown We'll meet at the Eagle/Local in Quakertown and stay together as we head down to the Park at 4th. Once there, we can walk for about an hour or so as we circle around the different paths or head through town. After the walk we'll head back to the 200 year old historic Eagle/Local, a familiar local dive bar. Plans for renovations have been pushed back but the food is good for those who want to stay for a drink or bite to eat. Meet in the parking lot behind the Eagle/Local. (make sure your GPS takes you to Quakertown and not Trumbauersville - we've had a few problems with that) Please wear bright colors as it will be dark, bring a flashlight and also wear boots or old shoes as the walkways can sometimes be muddy and/or wet this time of year. Thunderstorms, Heavy rain or snow cancels For more information on Allentown Hiking Club, please visit: allentownhikingclub.org
