an average 18,000 hawks, eagles and falcons pass Hawk Mountain each autumn, and each year we tally the number and type of birds that pass. An official counter and interpreters are on hand to point out and identify birds.

Bring binoculars (or rent at Visitor Center), something soft to sit on, water and snacks, and carry in a convenient daypack. Plan to relax at the lookout and spend at least an hour. Many people spend the morning, afternoon or even the entire day. A waterless, compositing restroom is located near the lookout. All trash must be carried in/carried out.

Remember: Members receive FREE trail admission year round. Considering investing in our mission today. Learn about membership now.
