Rockfish Gap Hawk Watch is one of over 200 hawk watch sites in North America who primary mission is to collect raptor identification and count data during fall migration in a rigorous fashion. More than 20,000 raptors migrate through Rockfish Gap each fall including hawks, falcons, eagles, osprey, kites, and harriers. We are unique in that our site is very easily accessible, with no hiking or climbing necessary.

A small group of local volunteers man the watch from Aug 15 Nov 30. Although migrating hawks can be see any day, peak migration occurs in the last two weeks of September and first two weeks of October. During this time we can see as many as 10,000 hawks on a single day.

Our hawk watch is conducted on the grounds of the Inn at Afton, just off highway 64 at exit 99 just east of Waynesboro, VA. Our location provides a 180 degree panoramic view of Rockfish Gap, the Shenandoah Valley to the west, and the Piedmont Region to the east. We are family-friendly and welcome all visitors (who can participate by helping to spot the hawks or just sit back and observe). If you visit, bring a lawn chair or blanket, food/drink, hat, sunscreen and binoculars. Visit our website for more information:www.rockfishgaphawkwatch.org.

The garden provides a tangible special place for people to reflect on the courage, dignity, and hope of those who have overcome cancer and those who have fought it so bravely, but lost. The garden is on a one acre knoll at the south entrance to Ridgeview Park off Northgate Avenue. A walkway leads you through an array of low growing shrubs, brightly colored flowers, all full of green leaves in the summer and beautiful color in the fall. Special benches line the walkways throughout the garden for your convenience.
Come ring the Peoples Bell three times to celebrate the end of treatments, to remember a loved one, or to bring hope for cure for all. A grass path leads visitors down to the South River for those who want to sit and listen to the quiet ripple of the water. Numerous plaques displayed in and around the garden explain the deep commitment from businesses, organizations, and individuals who believe in the fight against cancer.

We invite you to experience this beautiful gateway to nature, remembering the blessings of good health.

This lager-forward brewery features a large tap room, knowledgeable staff and sessionable beers. Inspired by a Native American blessing referencing the creator, the earth, the four directions, and back to the creator, Seven Arrows’s compass rose logo signifies the four directions and the four ingredients in beer. Twelve true-to-style beers are always on tap. A full kitchen, with onsite dining, is available through Nobos Restaurant.

At Sheetz, we like to turn convention on its head by offering great-tasting food at a convenience store. We’ve developed a made-to-order food program that rivals any quick serve restaurant you’ve ever visited.

Shenandoah National Park extends along the Blue Ridge Mountains in the U.S. state of Virginia. The Skyline Drive runs its length, and a vast network of trails includes a section of the long-distance Appalachian Trail. Mostly forested, the park features wetlands, waterfalls and rocky peaks like Hawksbill and Old Rag mountains. Shenandoah is home to many bird species, plus deer, squirrels and the elusive black bear. The park’s southernmost access point is just three miles from Waynesboro.

From spring to fall, you can enhance your trip along the Skyline with a stay at Big Meadows Lodge which has restaurants, cabins as well as more traditional rooms, and activites like live music and classes such as a basic outdoor survival skills class.

Whether you are looking for a scenic way to get from point A to point B, want to spend the day hiking and stopping at overlooks, or want to plan a serious vacation, Skyline Drive is a great way to reconnect with the outdoors.
