Acadia Closing Trails To Protect Peregrine Falcon Nests
The National Park Service is again closing the Precipice, Jordan, and Valley Cove cliffs in Acadia National Park to the public to protect the nesting territories of the once-endangered Peregrine falcon.
The Jordan Cliffs Trail, Valley Cove Trail, Precipice Trail, and a portion of the Orange & Black Path are closed to public entry until further notice, according to a Wednesday news release.
The trails and carriage roads on the perimeter of the closed areas remain open to public use. Signs at trailheads and trail junctions around the closed areas indicate where public entry is prohibited.
