Hawk Point is a nice overlook of the Susquehanna River. It's definitely a must-see for anyone driving through the area! There is a road that leads directly to the overlook that allows it to be wheelchair accessible. There are a few trails, most of which are marked easy but have moderate inclines.

The overlooks are nice, though this trail as highlighted doesn't actually lead to any of the overlooks. The Rhododendron Trail is definitely the best one in the park.

I attempted to take my 3 year old on this trail. Not recommended. It’s very rocky and steep. Luckily I was able to cut through to a different trail at the half way point to spare her from hating hiking.

Nicely marked trails, good views of the water, a tad on the short side for hiking. But there are plenty of other activities available.

Great view of the Susquehanna River from the overlook, a lot of hawks and other wildlife can be seen at and from this point! Great place to have a picnic since there are plenty tables around. There is a winding road a little bit away that takes you to the mouth of the river where you can launch your boat, kayak, or other water mobile from. Just an overall great little way to spend a few hours!
