Hawk Recreation Area Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This Forest Service campground is the northernmost campground located within GWJ National Forests in the Allegheny Mountains. It is pretty primitive, but at no fee the price is right.

You can access Tuscarora Trail from this campground, an extensive hiking trail that is a sort of side jaunt from the Appalachian Trail, starting from the section in Shenandoah National Park and meandering up into West Virginia and Maryland before rejoining the Appalachian Trail again in Pennsylvania. There are also great mountain-biking opportunities in the area."
