Eagle Nesting Site Closures Update

Preemptive eagle nesting site closures for climbing and camping at Smith Rock State Park are in place as of February 7, 2015.

Once the eagles have chosen their nest areas, we will post detailed maps as to which routes remain closed. See below for routes currently closed.

Normally the closure is February 1-August 1 for golden eagles in the Monument Area. The West Side Crags birds of prey nesting areas usually reopen by the end of June.

This is the latest update to include:

  • detailed route closures for the Monument Area
  • extension to March of any closures in the West Side Crags
