Laurah B. on Hawks Nest
This place is so beautiful!! Lots to explore along the trail. I only had time to go about 2 miles in, but was able to see small waterfalls and great views!
We hiked the Hawks Nest Rail Trail and started in Ansted just past the Rite Aid. The trail was 1.8 miles one way. It was a very easy trail. Their were caves, waterfalls and bridges, it was beautiful. You can also ride the tram down to the trail from Hawks Nest State Park but the tram is closed on Wednesdays, that's why we started at the other end. The trail follows the water the whole way. Their were many picnic tables along the trail. Best trail we've ever been on.
