The location has been fenced out. It does seem like a good spot for sunsets, but would have to be careful because of the restrictions. There are possibly ways to go to the viewing points, but would have to be careful.

My husband and I found this location, but it was closed because it required repairs due to the unsafe condition of the cliff.

Be careful not to go too close to the cliff edge, as there is a lot of fairly recent erosion. Very good vantage point to view the Swallows feeding. Nice view of Port Stanley to the East. Saw two Turkey buzzards, but no Hawks. Warrior193.

If you are naturalist by nature ,this is a good place to observe birds of prey ,especially in the fall and spring when they are migrating.There is usually a naturalist group there and most people will readily answer questions for you

Highly recommend attending one of their weekend events, great experience for kids & adults alike. Also a very peaceful place to go for a peaceful, contemplative stroll to get away from the hubbub of city life.

Hawk Cliff is a quiet place to take a walk and enjoy the view of the lake. Usually lots of birds to photograph

Though the edge is fenced off for safety reasons the new additional reserve will only help to improve what is Elgin County's birding spot.
