Morrow Mountain State Park: Hattaway Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike is short, diversified, and challenging—all in a good way. The route first joins the Quarry Trail near the picnic area at Morrow Mountain State Park. This argillite rock quarry is where members of the Civilian Conservation Corps harvested rock to build some of the buildings at Morrow Mountain State Park. Some of these structures are still used by the park and park visitors today. After exploring the jagged rock walls inside, the route then travels the steep slopes of Hattaway Mountain. This is a challenging ascent, the steepest in the park, but at just under half a mile, it does not last long.

The flat ridge on top of Hattaway Mountain provides glimpses through the trees of neighboring Fall Mountain and Sugarloaf Mountain. The trail descends another very steep route off the west slope of the mountain. From there, the hike will take you over the rolling terrain at the base of the mountain, before concluding at the Morrow Mountain State Park swimming pool."

Hattaway Mountain Trail (Loop) is a decent quick hike if you're in a hurry. At 2.1 miles, it doesn't take long at all. I wil say, this trail had more spiders than every other trail I've been on. It made it quite unpleasant.
