Also note that there may be hanging branches above which may present dangerous hiking conditions. If it is windy, hiking at Hawk Rise is not advised. The City of Linden is working hard to make sure all of the trails are safe. Please note any immediate danger and email photos to kelly.wenzel@njaudubon.org
