Awesome trail! Wasn’t overcrowded on a weekend and was very well marked. Pay attention to the map if you’re going to do the extra loop, if you don’t see the tree markings you did something wrong. Wear good shoes for making your way through the rocks. Save some energy for the last mile or so, it gets tiring and don’t go after heavy rain, there was still some residual muddy conditions and slippery rocks about 2 days after a storm.

Trail was very challenging. Rocky with steep inclines. Not for the faint of heart. Saying that my 8 ye old finished it with a lot of rests. Rewarding views at the lookouts and a sighting of one hawk.

Great hike as always. The trail was in great shape despite a lot of rain in the last week. I recommend hiking the trail counterclockwise (opposite direction that AllTrails directs you) so you end with the best views. Plus, it’s easier to go up the ridge than down.

If you didn't twist your ankle, did you really hike hawk mountain? #scramble

This trail will humble you- it isn’t for the faint of heart. Your cardio needs to be up to par. Four miles felt like 12 miles. I would HIGHLY suggest going counterclockwise. You will have a much better time. We absolutely did not realize just how difficult this hike would be. There are many beautiful views, especially the first one when you first enter, but you must work for the others. There are many rock climbs that were vertical & steep, having to use all fours. You absolutely need hiking boots or hiking shoes to get through the climbs. Bring plenty of water. Overall, the treacherous climbs are worth the beautiful 360 degree views. Everything is clean and extremely well marked. Do your research ahead of time. Be ready for a challenge if you choose to do the entire loop!

We chose the hottest day of there year so far to hike... fortunately we had plenty of water. Overall it was a Fun trail with a few challenging areas. I wouldn’t recommend for inexperienced hikers or people with bad ankles. I suggest you go to the Hawk Mountain web site to research your hike before heading out.

Loved doing this trail again after a year or so. We did the trail clockwise so we got all the views at the lookouts first and went down the rock scramble at the North lookout. I liked this route because I’d rather go down that than up. Starting at 8 am allowed us to be on that part of the trail (at all the lookouts) with no other people which was good because it’s hard to social distance on those rocks. Even after doing the boulder scramble for about a quarter of the hike, the trail remains very rocky so wear your hiking boots. Instead of doing the spur loop around the one section of river of rocks, we took the right onto the River of Rocks trail after our descent of the Golden Eagle trail for about a half mile to pop onto the rocks. There were no other people and we had the rocks to ourselves. After playing on the rocks and getting back on the trail back to the visitor center, we noticed a lot more people on the trail. Most people put on their masks and people were also moving off the trail to give space. This hike remains one of my favorite for its challenge and beauty. Bring lots of water and snacks, wear your boots, and stay safe!
