2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure at Index through July 15: routes from the waterfall to the Golden Arch on the Upper Town Wall are closed for the peregrine falcon nesting season. Each year, Washington Climbers Coalition partners with WA State Parks and WA DFW to monitor the Index Town Walls for nesting raptors. When hiking or climbing outside this closure buffer, avoid disturbance, keep noise to a minimum, and use your best judgment to gauge and mitigate your impact.
