Hike Hawk Rock, PA
Pennsylvania › Hawk Rock Parking Area
Added by Kendra Reeder
This hike is about a mile up, with approximately 750 feet of elevation gain. This is a fun but challenging hike and ends with an absolutely gorgeous view!
This is a steep and rocky hike, but is well worth the absolutely stunning view of Perry County - including Shermans Creek and the Susquehanna River.
This particular trail is also part of the Appalachian Trail and the AT can be accessed part way up the trail if you wish to head north on the AT, otherwise the Appalachian Trail continues south after you reach Hawk Rock.
Parking is in the gravel lot adjacent to the recycling center.
