_*Important Update*_, due to lack of maintenance on Lambert Road on the east side or Bedford county side, anyone who has a low vehicle might have some issues. here are 2 alternative options given to me by Bob Stewart.
Other driving directions from the east:
Alternate Route Option A - From Schellsburg take route 96 North. Continue to just before New Paris then turn left on Hoover Road. Proceed a very short distance (100 yards) then turn right onto Shaffer Mountain Road. This travels up the mountain for several miles. After cresting the mountain (maybe a mile from the crest) there will be a Y intersection. Take a left onto Fleegle Road. Proceed (maybe 2-3 miles) to the next intersection. Turn left onto Lambert Mountain Road. There will be Daley Cemetery immediately on your right. Continue up the hill about 0.5 miles. Turn right at the hawk watch sign at the blue gate and proceed to the parking area.
Alternate Route Option B - From Schellsburg take Route 30 West. Continue on Route 30 up the mountain going through a switch-back curve. Near the crest (after passing the site of the former Ship Hotel on the right), turn right onto Fleegle Road. Continue on the road (unsure of distance maybe 3-5 miles) to stop sign at Daley. Turn right onto Lambert Mountain Road, proceed immediately past Daley cemetery on your right. Continue up the dirt road for about 0.5 miles to Allegheny Front Hawk Watch sign. Proceed through blue gate to parking area.
Option B is also the easiest directions from the west.
For those people who have never been there, there is a portipotty on premises. Bring a lawnchair, bins, scope, camera, etc. It is a level walk from the parking area to viewing areas and you aren't far from the vehicles either. Certainly bring some rain gear along and layers as being on the top of a mt can always be cooler than you think. Sunscreen is always a good idea as well.
