Walk the Appalachian Trail for spectacular views of Hawk Mountain, the Lehigh Valley, and Blue Rocks. Many Appalachian Trail thru-hikers claim the views at The Pinnacle are the best views on the Pennsylvania stretch of the Appalachian Trail. On this hike you’ll get a vigorous workout climbing up the rocky path to the top then get a reprieve as you make a gentle descent on a wide dirt road. This is an extremely popular trail.
