We went over to PA to hike The Pinnacle
. It is normally an 8.6 mile hike but since it is so hugely popular, we decided to take the back way and park near Hawk Mountain
which made our hike 12.8 miles, but a little less crowded than the AT going to and from the Reservoir parking lot in Hamburg where most people park. It took 1 1/2 hours to get there from Central Jersey. The weather was gorgeous and the views were spectacular.
