Hawksbill is the highest peak in Shenandoah National Park. It is located in the center of Skyline Drive approximately 14 miles south of the Thornton Gap entrance. The summit is easily reached by one of two trails; one of which is 1.7 miles roundtrip, the other of which is 2.1 miles roundtrip. A shelter is located at the summit in case the weather turns bad, and a stone platform at the summit provides a beautiful view of the Shenandoah Valley below.
