Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Hawk Mountain has a network of signed trails on it, but they are largely on old skidder roads, and only some of them are cleared well for use when there isn't snow on the ground. I ascended using Cyrus and Europe. The first short section on Europe was quite brushy, but it soon joined with an older well-defined trail.

Comments
Comments: From Bear Mountain, it was a short drive to the trailhead for Hawk Mountain. Hawk Mountain has a network of signed trails on it, but they are largely on old skidder roads, and only some of them are cleared well for use when there isn't snow on the ground. I ascended using Cyrus and Europe. The first short section on Europe was quite brushy, but it soon joined with an older well-defined trail. The summit has limited views, but the views from the overlook are outstanding. They were definitely the best views of the day! From the outlook, I descended along the woods road and Cyrus.
