  • Temporary Closures Due To Fire Danger!

    Due to the inundation of the national wildfire response system, the lack of trained wildland firefighting staff within the park, and severe fire danger, Pinnacles National Park is implementing a temporary closure of the west unit of the park and all trail

2004 Closures Update

The following information comes straight from the Park Service:

Prairie falcons are incubating their eggs now, and raptor advisories have been updated. Things look a little different from last year. Advisories on all Gargoyle areas and Generation Gap Pinnacle areas are now lifted.

There are active nests at the Frog/Hand and Teapot Dome though, so those areas are now going to be under advisory for the rest of the season. We had stopped listing the frog and hand because there hadn't been any activity there for a while, but it looks like it's back in favor, so look for it on lists in the future. Sorry to add new areas - usually we only lift advisories in April.

More information to come later.

See FOP Closures List.
