Views were a little obstructed by trees. Be aware that basically the entire top of the ridge is a rock scramble and be prepared for that. Also ran across several copperheads along the rocks during midday, so watch your step!

Great hike. we started out early morning, 4am. definitely need boots here.

A nice, shorter day hike that provides a great workout! The trail is very well marked and features 'rugged' scenery -- if you've ever done Old Rag, this has a similar feel. I would rate the way up a little more strenuous than moderate -- as it's all uphill and, at points, with a steep grade. The view makes it worth it, though. If you're looking to extend your hike a little more, turn right at top of Hawk Rock and follow the AT for ~2mi. You'll hit an intersection with a blue blaze trail that leads down to a small shelter (about ~0.2mi on the blue blaze). Definitely recommend this hike and will return in the future!

Excellent day hike! Great views. Wasn't expecting rock scrambles, so be aware there is mild climbing involved. Rock faces are super cool at the summit. Can't wait to come back in the Fall. We got of Trail a bit and ran into a snake, so keep your eyes on the blazes.This was very clean. No trash or garbage.

Could be a bit rigorous for kids. Pretty steep, rocky and skinny trail on the way home.
