On most OSMP trails in this area, dogs must be on a hand-held leash at all times unless they meet the voice and sight control standard and display a City of Boulder Voice and Sight tag. Dog excrement removal is required by law.
Horses are allowed on all trails. On-trail riding is encouraged to protect rare plants and wildlife habitat.
This trailhead is named for the large birds of prey that frequent the area and is a wonderful place to view our winter raptors -- bald and golden eagles and many kinds of hawks. Other wildlife includes prairie dogs, coyotes, foxes and snakes.
