The best trail in Hawn State Park - White Oaks trail crosses several wet-weather creeks and has scenic views from large exposed sandstone rock outcrops. It travels through a diverse mixed hardwood and shortleaf pine forest. This is a very easy hike. There aren't any senic overlooks, or spectacular vistas, however it is an enjoyable hike with a few rock outcroppings along the way.

Enjoyed this hike. Beautiful wooded hike, perfectly shaded for a cool hike on a sunny/hot day.

As stated before, this is a moderate trail loop with some rocky inclines and creek crossings. Overall, absolutely beautiful, well labeled, and highly trafficked.

A fun short loop/out and back that goes over a few streams. Thought this was nicer in the spring when there was more water. Not sure about the variety but there were mushrooms everywhere!
