Stage Road Trail will NOT be affected by this closure, but all areas east of the trail will, including all rock formation areas. This closure is to help protect the American peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus anatum). This protected species is territorial and highly sensitive to disturbance during nesting season. The rocks – located in Pine Canyon – are closed to all access during these same months each year.

Although the peregrine is no longer endangered, it is still a fully protected species in California, and disturbance of nesting peregrines is punishable by fines and even arrest.
Please abide by the posted regulations, stay out of the restricted areas and don’t disturb the nesting birds. Public cooperation will be key to the success of the program.
