Site Description: Second Mountain Hawk Watch is located in Ft Indiantown Gap, PA, at the top of Second Mountain, north of the lake. You are able to drive right to the hawk watch.-look for several signs along the way. The flat parking lot makes it easy to use a chair or telescope to view the migrating raptors. Best views when winds are out of the southwest or moderately northwest. Counters are on duty from August through December. In addition to raptors, migrating songbirds are often seen along the road or on the trail beyond the hawk watch. A short drive down into Stony Valley via Cold Spring Road can also be productive.
Directions to site: From Interstate 81, take the Fort Indiantown Gap exit (from the north, exit 85, from the south, exit 85B) and go north on Fisher Avenue. Drive approximately one mile to Funck's Restaurant. Turn left and follow Hawk Watch signs to the top of 2nd Mountain. At the mountain top turn right off Cold Spring Road (dirt road) go about 1/2 mile to the parking lot and watch site.
