Hawks Nest via Cliff Side Trail

Hawks Nest via Cliff Side Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This hike at Hawks Nest State Park joins the base of cliffs overlooking Hawks Nest Lake, a dammed part of the New River. Traverse irregular terrain at the base of this cliff line where you will see huge rock houses, massive boulders, and impressive overhangs. Cruise by waterfalls on Turkey Creek before climbing back to the gorge rim and enjoying a view from the Hawks Nest, a historic vista that provides an ample reward for your efforts. The irregular footing makes for slow going but the distance makes it doable by just about everyone."
