Trading Post Opens at Hawks Nest

Hawks Nest State Park reopens the Trading Post at the iconic overlook. Constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the mid-1930s, the area includes the round stone structure that visitors are often curious about, and, directly across the lawn, is the Trading Post. A large lawn area, massive picnic shelter and ample parking invite visitors to stop.

When visiting this area and crossing the road, always stop, look and listen for traffic. The road is US 60, the Midland Trail, and a popular scenic route.
