Linville Gorge Area-Milepost 312.2 Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hawksbill is the less-jagged summit of the prominent duo of peaks, Table Rock and Hawksbill, that dominate the skyline of Linville Gorge. It has a sloping, rocky crest and low vegetation that permits expansive views.

It also offers relative privacy, at least compared with Table Rock. This hike also avoids an additional 5-mile drive on steep, winding, and dusty roads to Table Rock. Views include Table Rock itself and the cliffs and crags that make this a world- class rock-climbing site."

Beautiful January day to hike this trail. Muddy spots but we’re expected with our recent rains. Great experience. I would rate as semi-strenuous trail. There were steep spots requiring quick breaks to catch breathe.
