Awesome area, I love it and have hiked all the peaks and rock outcroppings, Pinnacle, Pullpit, Owls head, Hemlock heights, South rock (2 rattlers) and rattlesnake mtn. Lots of beautiful views.
You can hike the ridge or walk the dirt road all the way to Hawk Mountain's Owl's Head look out. Just awesome! First time there my dog found a Timber Rattle Snake den under the boulder I was sitting on. Now, how many people can say they found something like that? I was thrilled. There is so much wildlife to see, there are also many lookouts along the way.
