The Bay Area Sights

Hawk Hill

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Updated 02/03/2015

Fodor's Review

Craggy Hawk Hill is the best place on the West Coast to watch the migration of eagles, hawks, and falcons as they fly south for winter: as many as 1,000 birds have been sighted in a single day. The main migration period is from September through November, and the viewing area is about 2 miles up Conzelman Road from U.S. 101; look for a Hawk Hill sign and parking right before the road becomes one way. In September and October, on rain- and fog-free weekends at noon, enthusiastic docents from the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory give free lectures on Hawk Hill, and a raptor-banding demonstration follows at 1 pm.
