New closed area at Pewits Nest

As of June 2017, portions of Pewits Nest are closed to all public access to protect public safety and natural features. See the property map on the web page and signs posted at the site that delineate the closed area. The property remains open and the downstream (west) portion of the Pewits Nest gorge may still be viewed both from above and at stream level. However, the public is no longer able to access the cliff walls nor the upstream (east) end to gain entry into the gorge. Climbing on rock walls, cliff jumping or entering the closed area for any reason is prohibited, and violators will be subject to a citation. The temporary signs marking the closed area will eventually be replaced with rustic, permanent barriers and walkways that will be aesthetically fitting for the site.
