Hike to Hawk Falls in Hickory Run State Park
Pennsylvania › Hawk Falls Trailhead
Added by John Maurizi
This accessible and beautiful falls trail is a must-do for hikers in the area or passing through. Amble through the trees of Hickory Run State Park and enjoy the view of Hawk Falls.
Hawk Falls is located in Hickory Run State Park, Pennsylvania in the Poconos Mountains. The trail is mostly downhill, with some slippery sections so wear adequate shoes and take caution when you approach the falls. A rock outcrop at the top of the falls makes for a great lookout point. The 0.7 out-and-back trail is a good option for families as it is fairly short and manageable for hikers of all skill-levels.

The hike was incredibly easy and safe for kids of all ages. Once you have parked in the designated parking area off rte.534 the trail head is easily visible and takes maybe a total of 15 or so minutes to get to the main attraction. Google mapping the trail head is also possible and will lead you right to the parking area.
