Mount Peter Hawk Watch: Clean-up and Count

The view from Mount Peter, circa 1910

Judy Cinquina, esteemed coordinator of the Mount Peter Hawk Watch, writes:

The Mount Peter Hawk Watch will begin its 58th consecutive fall count Tuesday, Sept. 1 and will run daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  through November 15. 

Anyone interested in taking either half or whole days is welcome to join our friendly crew.  In any case, please come up and visit.

Our leaders always welcome the company and help spotting in-coming migrants. Our annual fall Clean-Up will take place Sunday, August 30 from 9 a.m. to noon.

If you are interested in becoming a leader or helping with the clean-up, please contact me.

The lookout is located on the top of 17A, between Greenwood Lake and Warwick, NY, and is marked by a pair of microwave towers. 

To reach the lookout, take Route 17 through Tuxedo to 17A and turn left.  Follow 17A up the mountain and into Greenwood Lake.  Keep right when you reach the lake and follow 17A up the second mountain. 

When you reach the top, you will see a sign for Bellvale Farms Creamery (excellent homemade ice cream) ahead. 

Turn right at the ice cream shop onto Kain Road and turn right again up the pot-holed dirt road to the lot or park down below.

(Thanks, Judy!)
