Nesting Golden Eagles Prompt Trail Closures

The Highlands Ranch Backcountry Wilderness Area Wildcat Mountain Trail System closes each winter January 1 - April 1 for all wintering wildlife and if the eagles' nest is successful, a portion of it remains closed through August. Mama eagle has been spotted on her nest, incubating an egg, or maybe even eggs! Typically, we can spot a baby or babies by the end of April or early May.

So, trail closures are in place. A one-mile section of the Douglas County East-West Regional Trail closed effective March 6 until further notice. Read More 

The entire Wildcat Mountain Trail System remains closed until April 1. After April 1, the two loops open but the out and back and the DC Trail (in red on the map) remain closed through August if the nest is successful. See Map and FAQs
