A great short hike to amazing views of Mt. Jefferson. On top of Hawk Mountain the only thing that remains is the old cabin. The site was developed in 1919 with a 60 foot three-legged timber platform tower and a frame cabin (still there). The site was abandoned in the 1950's.

Nice hike. Love that you are able to go inside the cabin and even stay. There is a notebook in there to leave your name. Would love to come back and camp, maybe when snow is falling. Good view of Jefferson.

Amazing hike during the fall for fall colors! We saw no one on the trail and it was super easy to follow and not get lost. The cabin was also fantastic to check out. Definitely a must hike!

Getting there.... GPS takes you past the trailhead. 4 way gravel intersection turn left, when you come to a T-intersection, trailhead is on your right, park anywhere along there. Trailhead sign says Rho Ridge TR #564. 3/4 of the way there, there is a sign for hawk mountain turn right and follow it up.
