In the autumn months, watch the raptor migration at Waggoner’s Gap Hawk Watch, or pack a picnic and visit Pinchot State Park, or Pine Grove Furnace State Park. We also cater to bicyclists – we have shelter and bike storage space in our barn and an area for repairs & maintenance with a bicycle stand.
