BAXTER'S PINNACLE CLOSURE, JUNE 7,2019.


The following area is temporarily closed to public entry: The Baxter’s Pinnacle climbing route, approach trail, and surrounding cliffs. This closes the Baxter’s Pinnacle climbing route to human traffic as well as the social trail that branches from the horse trail and serves as the approach route to the climb.

The National Park Service has determined that the closure is necessary for the protection of nesting peregrine falcons and their young. The peregrine falcon is a state Species of Greatest Conservation Need and is protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
