Raptor Closure Several Routes!
A voluntary closure is in effect at Fossil Hill from June 2 to July 31, 2021 to protect nesting raptors. The closure includes the four-wheel drive scars ascending Fossil Hill and all climbing routes west of the route “Milk Bone”. Raptors will actively defend nesting areas. Disturbance could result in nest abandonment, egg or chick loss, and increase the chance of predation. This is not only a climber safety issue but an important measure to protect nesting raptors. Please report any wildlife conflicts to the Forest Service @ 307-335-2157. Thank you.
