Hawk Mountain Sanctuary - Search Nearby - Added by Shannon Bushinsky

This rolling Pennsylvania landscape is enlivened by charming wildflowers, stunning autumn foliage, and fierce birds of prey. Hike in October to catch the showcased PA autumn colors on top of this mountain overlooking adjacent valleys, ridges, and mountains.

The 4.5 mile loop Hawk Mountain Lookout Trail takes you up to great views of the skyline of Pennsylvania. Surrounded by the rolling forested landscape and open sky, this trail is scenic through and through. Hike in the Spring to catch the flourishing wildflowers, and keep your eyes peeled for eagles, hawks, and other birds of prey. Trail is accessible April-October.
