ANIMALS IN STONE- HAWK ROCK

Hawk Rock sits on top of the eastern ridge. With a two hundred foot ascent from the forest floor this stone is positioned to witness the celestial events in the Eastern skies. Directly in front of this stone runs wall north to south and to its immediate right a U-shaped structure. It is understood that these U-shaped structures were viewing seats for Sachem during the year through growing cycles.
