Hawk Ridge trail is a 4 mile loop trail that follows the perimeter of the park and is a good mix of woodlands and meadows. Some of the highlights are several 200-300 year old trees along the route. Most of the champion trees are marked with plaques describing their species and age. If hiking in the afternoon to early evening you are almost guaranteed to pass a few deer along the way. Portions of the trail are open to equestrian travel, and there are large fields with equestrian jumps and obstacles too. There is plenty of room on the trail for bikes. The trail is paved or hard-packed gravel and marked extremely well. Please note that new signs have been placed along the southern section and the trail appears to have been moved from what is shown on the posted maps.

Depending on the pedestrian traffic, this is usually a great trail. Has a few hills, enough to make it interesting, but not so many that the hike is hard. Mainly pretty easy with a few moderately hard inclines.

Nice and easy day hike. Pretty scenery. Will definitely come back to see how it is in the Spring.

Challenging enough to give a good workout but not a difficult trail at all. Nice inclines and beautiful scenery. The sections that are heavily wooded are beautiful.

Heavily used by hikers, dog walkers, trail runners, and bikers especially on weekends. The trail is well maintained. The hilly section of the trail can be somewhat muddy.

Well maintained and relatively easy with some mild climbs. Great for a family hike.
