Sarah M. on Hawk Rock Trail
Fairly easy, straight-forward hike. Steady incline but nothing too strenuous.
The trail was well taken care of and posed very few issues. Some spots were a bunch of loose rocks, but nothing to cause worry. It is fairly steep gradient, but the view at the top is absolutely worth it. I ate my lunch there today. I am told if you keep going on the trail until you come to a shelter, ~2-3 miles further, there is another lookout. I heard it was just as good. I would definitely recommend this trail.
The trail was fun, but you can hear cars in the distance most of the time. Probably best to go in the fall if you're looking for views as trees obstruct all the lookout areas.
Great trail. Varied terrain. Would give it 5 stars but the traffic noise for the first half mile or so. After that it's great.
