2017-2023 Seasonal Raptor Closure: Entire Cliff Area
U.S. Forest Service Seasonal Raptor Closure for Peregrine Falcon and Golden Eagle Nesting:
Moonlight Crags has a seasonal closure from Feb 1 to July 15 for a five year period in an effort to encourage cliff use by nesting raptors. This period may be extended on a year-by-year basis if fledgling birds are present later.
During this time please respect the closure buffer and avoid disturbance, keep noise to a minimum, and use your best judgment to gauge and mitigate your impact.
Successful nesting raptors will not negatively impact climbing access in the long-term, but disrespecting the seasonal closures will. Moonlight Cliffs is open to public access throughout the rest of the year.
