Hike to Hawk Falls for a beautiful sight!
Hickory Run Sate Park's Hawk Falls is a 25-foot, natural waterfall accessible via scenic hike. Parking is available off of PA 534, just east of the turnpike overpass. The trail begins in rhododendron thickets and hugs the side of a hill down to Hawk Run. A large footbridge crosses the creek. The trail bears right at Mud Run, wanders through a tunnel of rhododendron and ends with a view of Hawk Falls. The trail is 0.6 miles and somewhat difficult. Find trail maps and more resources at the park office.
