Timber Hollow Overlook, Luray, VA, USA
Hawksbill Mountain Beginner Hike
About 5.5 miles and 1300ft of elevation in Shenandoah National Park. Check here https://www.hikingupward.com/SNP/HawksbillTimberHollow/ for more details.
I want to look at mountains. But I want to be atop a mountain while doing so. Enter Hawksbill. The perfect solution to my quandary.
This is a short hike free from any overly strenuous sections, making it a good hike for all skill levels. If you can walk 6 miles, you can do this hike.
Bring water, 1-2 liters worth. Bring food, as much as you want to eat (I recommend lunch and snacks). Bring hiking shoes (boots, trail-runners, whatever suits your disposition). And bring a backpack to hold your belongings.

This trip needs drivers and people with National Park passes. Either one of these will get you priority off the waitlist.
