This trail is closed part of the sprung and summer. These cliffs and surrounding areas are used by peregrine falcons, a state-listed endangered species, for nesting and rearing young fledglings. Peregrine falcons are very sensitive to disturbance near the nest site. This year (2011) the trail is closed March 15 - August 15th, but it can open earlier if the biologists say it's OK.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
