Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, located along the Appalachian Flyway in east-central Pennsylvania, offers an outstanding, year-round nature experience with educational displays, 8 miles of hiking trails and mountaintop vistas where you can watch the thrilling migration of nearly 20,000 hawks, eagles and falcons each autumn.
Hawk Mountain Sanctuary is a leader in raptor conservation. Since 1934, Hawk Mountain has introduced people of all ages to the phenomenon of hawk migration and to the ecological complexity of the Appalachian region. As the world's first raptor refuge, the Sanctuary pioneered efforts to reverse negative attitudes toward predatory birds that prevailed in the early 20th century. Today hundreds of migration watch-sites find their roots at Hawk Mountain.
Hawk Mountain is located north of Hamburg, Pennsylvania, approximately 7 miles northeast of I-78.
