Did the short hike from Hawksbill parking lot and it was super casual. Have hiked White Oak Canyon before, but have not linked the two yet. Highly suggest doing that!

Love the 3000ft elevation gain via Cedar Run. Hard to top in this area.

My favorite route is Cedar Run via the White Oak Canyon trailhead. It's a good workout with a 3000' gain. The views from the summite are some of the best in the east.

In winter, during times of significant snow and ice, crampons and axe may come in handy. There are a few places along Cedar Run where a slip wil send you sliding 50'-70' down sideways into the stream.

ProvotroutNice View  Sucess!


Saw a large buck near the summit, 6+ points. Very nice panoramic view. Got a little snow squall on the top while everything below was untouched!

A sunny day in December is definitely the time to tour Skyline Drive. The park was almost deserted! Enjoyed the brief walk to the top and unobstructed 50-mile views!

Date Climbed: Oct 2, 2011


Nice 2.9 mile loop that challenged my four year old daughter, but the whole family made the summit and back in 2 hours. The summit had scattered snow on the ground and ice on the tree branches. A great view. A nice easy trek for families. My wife admitted that she was on the look-out for bears, since we had seen four the previous day, but none were sighted this day.

I have done it as part of a big loop that also included Old Rag, Robertson Mountain, and Stony Man.

Most recently, I climbed it from the cemetery at Mt. Zion Church in Luray, also climbing Nakedtop along the way - over 18 miles roundtrip.

Hiked up Hawksbill as often as I could when in high school (which, since I didn't own a car until senior year, meant as often as I could talk my parents into it).

Shenandoah is a magical place. Nothing overly-dramatic about it, but it slowly grows on you like drinking scotch.

Wanted a challenge so I started at the base of Cedar Run and the lower Whiteoak Canyon Parking lot. Hiked up Cedar Run to Hawksbill. A modest ~3300 feet of elevation gain and about 8 miles round trip coming back down Cedar Run. Little bit of snow and it was about 10 degrees at the top. Saw not a soul until the lower parking lot.
