Went to Hawk mtn today, 11/1/12 with a group from work. We hiked to north point and back, checked out the visitor center. Had a great time. Thanks for having educated staff present at the north lookout calling out birds they see and where. We saw a golden eagle thanks to you guys today. Wish we lived closer. Fred from Warminster, Pa.

The park in an example in terms of conservancy. Nicely maintained: clean and well marked (in a good way, not "over-marked"). Beautiful views (the South Lookout, which is very close to the visitor center and acessible with wheelchairs, is wonderful), the River of Rocks is really interesting. Thank you all who helps to maintain this Sanctuary.
