Family time  Sucess!

Hike with family on relo trip to Florida. I had to carry my 35lb 3 year old 95% of the time making it bit more challenging than planned. My 14yr old chihuahua had great time and hiked half the distance, my wife completed on foot. Perfect weather to enjoy this park.

A lovely May climb  Sucess!

I tagged the top of Hawksbill as part of an overnight loop hike from the base of Whiteoak Canyon (which must have been around 2500-3000' of gain over seven or eight miles). Was surprised to see the leaves were just emerging up top--they'd been out for weeks down below. I descended just in time to avoid an afternoon thunderstorm and spent the night at a backcountry site along the AT.

With EastKing and his uncle  Sucess!

We were here for a friend's wedding so EastKing decided to take me there with his uncle. Views were great and there was no air pollution which means the views were CLEAR!!!

Go from White Oak  Sucess!

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!

From Cedar Run  Sucess!

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

Fantastic views  Sucess!

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.

Nice 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!

Beautiful Winter Day  Sucess!

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!

Hawksbill Mountain  Sucess!

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.

6x  Sucess!

I have climbed Hawksbill several different ways. Once I did it as part of a big loop that also included Old Rag, Robertson Mountain, and Stony Man. On another occasion I climbed it from Mt. Zion Church in Luray, also climbing Nakedtop along the way - over 18 miles roundtrip. Most recently I descended from Hawksbill Gap alongside Hawksbill Creek to see the numerous falls there, then ascended the north slopes of Nakedtop to its summit and continued to the summit of Hawksbill.
