Description

From the Upper Hawksbill parking area, located at mile 46.7 along the Skyline Drive, the trail goes into the woods from the bulletin board. After a short steep stretch you have a steady, easy climb through a young oak forest. Two-thirds of a mile from the start, the trail dead-ends and intersects with a fire road (the Hawksbill Trail/Byrds Nest #2 Road).

Thanks to Larry W. Brown, for sharing this description. If you’re interested in learning more details about great runs, weather, camping / lodging, wildlife, and scenic drives, check out the comprehensive Guide to Shenandoah National Park.
