  • Hawksbill Crag is an amazing, bucket list kind of hiking experience. The hike itself is up and down a handful of ravines and across the bluff summit. It's rocky, steep in some areas and tree roots...  more »
  • Couple of miles not to strenuous hike. Walking along nice cliffs and then Hawkbill formation. Kind of the trill to stand on this rock outcrop knowing that below it is not much of support.  more »
  • Nice trail to the view point. Visitor center lady told me someone walked over too close to the edge a few weeks ago... view is the same a few feet away from the edge so enjoy safely. Also someone said it’s about 2 miles round trip, I think it’s much shorter. Expect to drive in unpaved road(fair condition)for 6 miles
  • Beautiful view on Whitaker Point. Wear comfy shoes and weather appropriate clothing. I’d also recommend bringing water and some protein snacks. Not too strenuous, but take care & don’t go alone bc it can be slippery and no fences or ropes are there for safety. There’s usually someone out there who can grab a pic of you on the cliff. Worth the view.
