I love Hawk Mountain. nice views, variety of difficulty, good photographing opportunities.

Great trail- we parked at the inn and started/ended our loop there. Orange out and white back. Very cool 5 mi hike- it’s easy to get off on a side trail, but you can’t really get lost

Beautiful trail. One side of the creek had a lot more terrain and was good for a workout hike. Would 100% recommend

Solid steady hike with a good scramble at the end but we wished we could’ve brought our dog!

Followed the white #1 trail and came in at 5.75 miles. Rocky and ‘technical’ on the north side of the ski slopes. Shorter and easier to the south. Refreshments at the Trail’s End Café afterwards. Great day!

The Orange trail is nice and has some pretty scenery. However, staying on the Orange trail is limited (and full of traffic). If you're looking for a more challenging and less travelled hike, follow the AllTrails loop -- Orange trail to Blue trail to Red trail and back to Orange.

Great time to spend outdoors, amazing views, going counter clockwise is the way to go if you want the whole adventure experience.

It was a lot of fun to get out and start exploring some of the more impressive trail systems in PA!!!! 11/10/2018

Beautiful view in Autumn. And you can have a nice lunch at Valley Green Inn after walking.

Skyline section is so much fun! I highly suggest doing this counterclockwise.

Great trail and really surprising that this is in the city. It's good for a leisurely walk, running, or biking. You can take smaller trails that are off of the main path if you want a more challenging hike.

Visited 10/28/18. Paid $10 per person and it’s well worth it! Attended a 30 minute educational lecture of the different raptors that migrate through the area. The trails are pretty. Be prepared for a lot of boulders and rocky terrain. Their easy to maneuver but I suggest good hiking shoes.

Went on a Saturday afternoon paid $10.00 well worth it!

What a great hike! Be prepared for lots and lots of rocks and boulders! Challenging but even my 12 yr old finished strong!
Proper shoes and water and snacks is a must. The loop took us about 4hrs. Exhausted but what a great day!

nice quiet walk. great for a simple run or a bike ride.

This hike does have great views, comparable to Pulpit Rock and the Pinnacle, did it counter to save the views for the 2nd half of the hike. Didnt see many hawks but it wasnt peak season being August (from what im told this place gets amusement park packed during peak season which is late September to early October). The river of rocks was really cool, especially from the view point. Some rock climbing here and there with lots of rock hoping, but this is expected in rocksylvania so make sure you have some sturdy boots. Alot of info available on the trail and in the vistors center regarding wildlife, geology and history. Main downfall is the 10 dollar entrance fee, to me thats pretty steep but at least it goes to a good cause being a sanctuary and all.

this was a great Trail really intense great for experience of rock climbing saw one of my favorite snakes on the trail timber rattlesnake it took me and my hubby a total of 6 hours to complete the entire loop really intense hiking on rocks sharp rocks stick snakes but a very beautiful great hike

Kept me on my toes in a very enjoyable sense! Scenic views, and all-inclusive sensational experience. The smells, sights, sounds and feels were astounding for being within a metropolitan area. It was like walking through a wardrobe and being instantly amid an air that tasted of crisp freedom!

I absolutely love this trail! With well marked trails and spectacular views I would definitely recommend taking the whole loop!

Nice trail - moderate difficulty, nice variation in terrain. Our 7 and 9 year old were pretty tired after doing the large orange loop in 2h 20m. We parked at the Alpine St lot - we got the last spot at 10am on a Sunday, but there's plenty of street parking if you need. Trails are well marked, but Alltrails with GPS definitely helps - we didn't have to double back once. Not much in the way of views except when you reach the powerlines, but lots of nice rock formations, streams and wildlife.

Good spot to hike today, great weather started @ 930 probably a good time before the crowds started... did the orange & some red to do the one loop... saw a ton of sights up in the air, hawks & eagles.

It wasnt quite as challenging as I expected it to be, but we had a great time anyways.

We started to the right going downhill along the right side it the rocks... tricky rocky hike going downhill to the lowest elevation - from there the climb to the summit was good and hard. There were three places with very challenging rock climbing to get to the next point of the trail. We’re active healthy 50 year-olds and we did ok. Saw several Eastern Diamondback rattle snakes sunning on the rocks within ten feet of our trail. Allow about 4.5 hours. Be sure to have good supply of water and energy foods to keep going. Have fun!

It was a nice trail, it was our first time hiking there

Love this trail!!

Great hike. The trails are very well maintained. Great views. We spotted some birds, but couldn’t determine what they were. Overall it was a very nice day.

Be ready for a rocky trail. Great hike. Not much scenery until you get to the lookout points. Better have good footwear

Well marked trail with much to see. Downloading a map would be a good idea as there are a lot of options. The boulders are awesome. Today was muddy due to all the rain.
