Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, a global raptor conservation facility, draws visitors from all over the state and beyond all year around. It’s an ideal destination to learn about birds of prey, to attend a variety of events, and to take part in educational workshops. You can also explore some of its 2,600 acres on one of the five scenic hiking trails. Arguably one of the most challenging, River of Rocks Trail in Pennsylvania is a one-of-a-kind path worth the effort – if you’re up for it.
