Tallest (and probably busiest) Peak in Shenandoah

Beautiful views with a fraction of the effort of Old Rag. There's a neat observation post at the peak as well as a shelter. Pretty heavily trafficked, but for a understandable reason- if you're looking to squeeze one more short-ish hike into your Shenandoah visit, this is the one to do.

Hawksbill, Shenandoah NP  Sucess!

Nice short hike to get the highest mountain in the park, great viewpoint.

a long while between visits  Sucess!

I first climbed this peak in 1986, on my honeymoon. It's nice to come back here occasionally, though I could do without the crowds....

Hawksbill  Sucess!

We hiked this as a family. We had nice, cool fall temps. The views at the summit were great!

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!!!

The earliest was July of 1998 on a very good day.

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!
