Main Street in Central City ends at a T, turn left onto Shaffer Mountain Road. After 0.8 miles make a right turn onto Lambert Mountain Road and go into the little village of Daley. Continue straight through an intersection past the Daley Cemetery for one-half mile. There will be a blue metal gate on the right, the entrance to the Allegheny Front Hawk Watch.

This cleared area sits atop the Allegheny Front on Shaffer's Mountain, 800 feet above the valley floor. Here the public is invited to join volunteers who maintain a daily vigil in the spring and fall, counting raptors who use this flyway annually for migration. As many as 18,000 raptors have been counted here during the fall migration.
