GGRO Hawkwatchers spy the skies from Hawk Hill

Watch hawks trace circles in the sky from rolling hills in the Marin Headlands. Besides its widescreen vistas of the Pacific and the Golden Gate, Hawk Hill offers fascinating wildlife experiences.

It is the best place to witness the fall raptor migration with the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory, and provides habitat for the endangered Mission blue butterfly. You can also visit Battery 129, a historic World War II military installation.
