Hawks think of nothing but murder all day
Most of Hydraulic Highway will be closed to all traffic for the event. (The bathing pool is still accessible from the top of Hydraulic at Porklandia/PBJ.) The road closure is protecting an active hawks’ nest with nestlings. Any human appearing in the hawk’s range is dangerous –not only because the hawk may attack you– but also it could endanger the young hawks if they are disturbed, leave the nest too early, or are not cared for by the distracted mother. Better for humans and hawks to stay away from each other. The land itself is also unsafe because due to the nest, foresters were unable to clear hazardous trees. Observe the posted cordon and help others stay out.
