Nice short hike to get the highest mountain in the park, great viewpoint.
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....
Gentle walk in the AM. Better for sunset though
Great loop to dodge some of the crowds!
Good day hike with the wife
We hiked this as a family. We had nice, cool fall temps. The views at the summit were great!
Climbed up with Joanie, Bruce, Journey, & Brit. Brit and I ran down Salamander and on the AT back. Warm day, fun trail, great company!
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.
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.
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.
Forty minutes or so to the top. A good quickie.
I hadn't visited Shenandoah National Park since I was a kid.
Fun, short climb to a great view.
Easy hike, nice weather.
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.
