These cliffs and surrounding areas are used by peregrine falcons, a state-listed endangered species, for nesting and rearing young fledglings. Peregrine falcons are very sensitive to disturbance near the nest site. To protect the peregrine chicks, the areas in the table below are closed when the peregrines are nesting. Check your hiking route to make sure that the trails you wish to use are open; remember to visit the Temporary Closures
page as well.
