Hanging Rock Observatory
 
 Situated atop Peters Mountain, the site was once manned as a fire observation post of the national forest. Now used by hawk watchers to observe migrations in the autumn, the vantage point rests at an elevation of 3,812 feet, nearly 2,000 feet above the valley floor below. The lookout offers an outstanding panorama of Monroe County, and on clear days views can extend well into Mercer, Summers, and Greenbrier Counties in West Virginia, and Allegheny, Craig, Roanoke, and Giles Counties in Virginia.
