Raptor Rapture in South Central PA
Waggoner's Gap Hawk Watch, just north of Carlisle! The spot to be in Fall to observe Golden and Bald eagles, Coopers, Northern Harriers, Red-Tailed hawks and Brown and Turkey vultures over the beautifully and colorfully painted Cumberland Valley.
Autumn is the best time to visit and see the volunteers who diligently count all the birds on their migration path. Two trails lead to the observation spot: the Hawk Trail (marked with an orange bird painted on the
rocks) and the Songbird trail (marked with a yellow bird painted on the rocks). Both trails lead to the expansive view of the Cumberland Valley.
