Protecting Nesting Golden Eagles
Every year beginning in late winter, Golden Eagle nesting activity is monitored and trails and public areas around the nests are closed. We appreciate your cooperation during the temporary trail closure, as nesting Golden Eagles are extremely sensitive to the presence of people. Eagles who are disturbed are likely to leave the nest. People must stay at least one-half mile from active nests to ensure the best chances of chick survival.
