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.
