Trail Notes: Sturdy shoes are great, though as this only took me half an hour, I wouldn't worry too much about footwear choices. Getting There: About half a mile south of Lake Willoughby on 5A there is a single lane CCC road and parking lot. Drive up the very well maintained dirt road for 1.7ish miles. There will be a small pullout and just above the pullout and ten feet up the road on the right, but above the road is the trailhead. The sign says "Herbert Hawkes Trail".

Never actually made it to the trail. Walked and walked and walked forever on CCC road. Terrible directions and no signs directly towards any trail. Terrible cell phone service and lots of bugs. So remember to map the way before hiking and bring bug spray!!!

Ridiculously bad directions. Long long drive up a long long gravel road with no signage. Mt. Pisgah is a better hike all around. To Hor trail:
Drive north on 5a to the mt Pisgah south trail parking lot. CCC road to Mt Hor is opposite the Pisgah parking lot. Go up and up forever in CCC road. Lots of ruts - so be careful if you do not have high suspension.

Only one less star for the incredible difficulty finding the trailhead. Definitely further down than any map that shows where it is; I was on CCC Road for quite some time. Parking lot is on the right with the trailhead immediately after. The hike itself was amazing - lots of variety on the trails with rocks, steps, and winding paths, and 3 separate lookouts. The North and East lookouts were incredible. Bring bug spray!

Amazing views from East and South lookouts. The trail was being maintained by Northwoods Stewardship Center today when I hiked. Only saw 3 other people on the trail. Lovely hike. In the Summer you can drive up the CC road, parking lot is on the right with the trailhead just past the parking lot on the Right as well. Approx 2 miles.

Great moderate hike. All three views were great. Only passed one other group of hikers on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon in June. The trail head is hard to find. Make sure you set your odometer as you leave the first parking area and head up the gravel road. It's the second turn off if I remember correctly and the trail is just passed where you park. We drove right by it the first time and caught it on our way back toward the highway.

Definitely worth it, makes Pisgah a bit overrated.
