Rockfish Gap Hawk Watch on Afton Mountain
September 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
6th annual Open House at Rockfish Gap Hawk Watch. We are unique in that our site is very easily accessible, with no hiking or climbing necessary. Our hawk watch is conducted each fall on the grounds of the Inn at Afton (elevation 2,000 ft), just off highway 64 at exit 99 just east of Waynesboro, VA. One can literally drive up, park and hawk watch. Observation from the parking lot provides a 180 degree panoramic view of Rockfish Gap, the Shenandoah Valley to the west, and the Piedmont Region to the east. Peak migration occurs in the final two weeks of September. During this time we can get 50-100 visitors on the weekends who come to enjoy the raptor show of as many as 10,000 hawks on a single day. 434-249-2927.
