#1 of 4 Outdoor Activities in Ponca
This is definitely a trail I will do again maybe in the Spring, but glad I can cross it off my bucket list for a Fall hike.
The best time to see the valley from Hawksbill is early morning to watch the mist assend into the heavens, or in the fall when the leaves are aflame with fall colors.

Great for people of all hiking abilities since it’s an out and back trail and you can turn back or rest on a bench if it gets too strenuous.
There are areas that you can climb up into a small waterfall and see a little cave that leads into a stream that is against a rock wall.

Friendly attentive staff made for smooth shuttles, canoe rentals, picnic lunch and other logistics; easy to enjoy the river when so well set up.
We were in the area hiking, definitely in the off-season for canoeing; however, we got the last season spot for the Ponca Valley zipline experience.

If you go, be sure to keep a lookout on the left side of the river about a mile before the end (Kyle's Landing) to see a staircase of waterfalls where you can pull off and walk up to see them!
I highly recommend Lost Valley Canoe and plan to return for an overnight canoe trip with them.
