Town Hill Hawk Watch

Town Hill Hawk Watch
Little Orleans, Allegany County, MD

This relatively new site, located in Allegany County, features a long, roofed shelter with a great view of the valley to the east. Take I70 west which you can pick up at Baltimore or, if coming from the DC area, at Frederick. Just past Hancock, take I68 west. You enter Allegany Co. at the foot of and on this side of Sideling Hill. Town Hill is the next ridge as you travel west. Exit I68 at Orleans Road, exit 68. Bear right as you come off the exit and continue to a stop sign at Scenic Rt. 40. Turn left on 40 and drive to the top of the ridge (no more than 1 mile). As you reach the top, the Town Hill Hotel is on your right and the hawk watch is on your left just opposite the hotel.
