Ten cliffs and hiking trails across the state have been closed to protect peregrine falcon nesting areas, state wildlife officials said. Biologist John Buck said peregrine nesting season is well underway and falcons are sensitive to humans. Buck said the closed areas include the portions of the cliffs where the birds are nesting and the trails leading to the cliff tops or overlooks. In many cases lower portions of the trails are still open.
