Warning Access Issue: Seasonal Nesting Closure DetailsDrop down

Description Suggest change

The North End is an amazing display of geologic geometry, dazzling colors, and large clusters of ancient boulders that fell from the cliff line thousands of years ago. The North End is the only sector in which you can climb during the annual nesting closure. The route Shaman School defines the closure boundary and is pretty conspicuous when you are looking for it. There is clear signage on the trail at the boundary point. If you see folks out of bounds during the closure period, please help them understand the necessity to stay true to the line. We all need to do our part to sustain the new boundary and access as a whole.
