Description

Hawksbill Trail is a great summit trail to an incredible summit. The trail is technical and gets steadily steeper as you go, but the 360-degree views from the summit are totally worth it. Link this trail up with the Jonas Ridge Trail, and you have a great out-and-back, or you could loop it with the gravel road.
