Posted by Mike Volk on 03/22/12

From the Smith Rock State Park office:
A pair of Bald Eagles is nesting at Smith Rock State Park. The nest is in a large ponderosa pine tree located between the Bivouac camping area and the Crooked River.

Approximately ten camp sites along the canyon rim in the Bivouac camping area are closed. Also a section of the Canyon Trail is closed. Closure signs have been posted in the Bivouac camping area, at the Canyon Trail trail heads, and along the Canyon Trail at the point of the closure. The closures will be in place through July 31, 2012 or until further notice.

This closure does not effect any climbing routes or access.
