Per Karen Gotski
: the road closure is very recent. I was hiking in that area in mid-August, and it was open. The seasonal raptor nesting closure was from 2016, so it was in place before this area went up on the site. It appears to have been rescinded.
Original closure order (2016-14): fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DO…
Current closure notices (note 2016-14 is no longer listed, and I don't see a replacement order): fs.usda.gov/detail/psicc/al…
Per Mitch Holck
: the Forest Service has recently closed the access road (from both ends) to Duck Rock from La Salle Pass Rd.
Per Dan Hat
: this area is likely under the raptor closures as seen on the peregrine falcon closure maps on the Elevenmile Canyon page. Please check carefully before climbing in this area.
