A great hike to a view From the gate follow the road up to the Appalachian Trail, follow the white blazes through the switch backs then climb to the summit of Pulpit Rock
The Hiking Princesses loved this hike. We found it to be challenging and scenic, We met a lot of nice people along the trails. Unfortunately, the fog rolled in and we were unable to view the beautiful vistas, but it did not discourage us as the journey was well worth it. The trails are well marked which made us feel safe and confident. This was in grade 8.7 mile hike, returning along the babbling furnace creek. A destination not to be missed.
Beautiful views, worth the hike up! If you want the easy way up, take left at the loop
Great trail and easy to follow. Did the Pulpit Rock loop in an hour and 45min. Definitely recommend the counterclockwise approach as well. Climbing rocks is much better than descending them.
Did this as part of the Pinnacle loop...
I actually liked Pulpit Rock viewpoint better than The Pinnacle. I agree with earlier posts that the counterclockwise route is the best. Climb the rocks/boulders and descend smoother terrain. Lots of snakes, which made it all the more interesting.
First time here, just me and my dog, and I got lost. Thankfully this app saved me. Once you get to the wood paths, I highly recommend taking path counter-clockwise/the path to the right. The other way is a really steep paved road, which is nice when you're already tired from the earlier hike and can zoom down to get home.
Could've been better marked in the beginning. Got lost early one. But the rest of the path was nicely marked. Hardly saw anyone until the lookout point of Pulpit Rock. Only a little buggy.
good trail. stick to the right at the first intersection unless you want a tougher more vertical climb
