DIRECTIONS TO WILDCAT RIDGE HAWKWATCH: 

From Route 23:

From I-287 (north or south) take Route 23 north for 8.9 miles to La Rue & Green Pond Road exit. Cross over Route 23 and go south a very  short  distance and take immediate right onto Green Pond Road (CR513).  Go 5.1 miles  south to a left turn onto Upper Hibernia Road (Opposite Marcella Community Center). See local below to continue.

From I-80: 

Take exit # 37 (Rockaway/Hibernia). Turn left (north) at light. Proceed 6.3 miles to right turn onto Upper Hibernia Road (opposite Marcella Community Center.) 

Local:

Stay on Upper Hibernia Road for 2.7 miles, (It turns into dirt road) to a large white gravel parking lot on left. This area has access to the Beaver Pond trail and the Wildlife Management Center. 

A second lot is further down on the right. There is a brown sign with

Wildcat Ridge WMA, Hawkwatch/Overlook Trail

Park at either location. 

Just past the sign, on the left are two white gate posts.  Enter and walk, to just before the yellow gate. Turn right here, and follow the orange blazed trail to the site. (20-25 minute walk.) If you prefer, you can go around the yellow gate, and follow the road to the site.  (15-20 minute walk.)  Following the telephone lines all the way. At about 3/4 mile up, you  will see a large pile of stone (cairn) on right. Turn there and that trail joins the orange trail in about 35 feet.
