Climb, hike and soar across Hawk Peak in this peaceful platformer.

Escape to the wilderness and explore a tiny open world in A Short Hike. Play as Claire, a young bird who is visiting her aunt at Hawk Peak Provincial Park, who decides to make the trek to the very top of the mountain.

Follow the marked trails or explore the backcountry as you make your way to the summit. Along the way, meet other hikers, discover hidden treasures and take in the world around you.

As you explore the island, collect golden feathers which will help you fly and reach new heights. Chat with those you meet along your route - you might be able to help each other out!

A tiny open world

Hike at your own pace

Take your time fishing along the river banks or cruising along the shore in a motorboat. There's no rush to get to the summit, and plenty to do along the way.
