This is one of my favorite short hikes. With clear blue skies and very low humidity on 4/8/17 the views were exceptional!! The loop trail from Hawksbill Gap parking area offers the best scenery.

This was an amazing hike! It is a great hike full of very nice views but not very difficult so it made for a nice quick starter hike. I definitely plan on doing this hike again this spring!

You really avoid the crowds by coming up the AT. A few rock scrambles but otherwise straightforward terrain. Summit includes a shelter and a great lookout point. My 6 year old rocked it.
