Stone Mountain Hawk Watch: Mifflin County and Rothrock State Forest

The Stone Mountain Hawk Watch is on the Huntingdon and Mifflin County Border and serves as a hawk migration count location during the peak migration seasons. Even without bird sightings, the overlook is breathtaking. It gives a beautiful view of the topography in this area and requires a fun jaunt through state forest roads, one of my favorite ways to traverse the state. The platform was built by volunteers from the State College Bird Club and Juniata Valley Audobon. To get to the platform you follow a short, .25 mile trail along the ridge top. The winds were not conducive to migration on the day that we went, but the view is still spectacular, nonetheless. On active days, like right now, you should see hundreds of different raptors, including hawks, eagles, and more.
