HRCA Trail FAQs

Do the trails ever close?

The Wildcat Mountain Trails close January 1st – March 31st to allow wildlife such as deer and elk to winter with minimal human disturbance. This is also the time golden eagles begin their courtship and nesting behavior.

The Wildcat Mountain trail, not the entire system, remains closed April 1st through August if the Golden Eagles nest on Wildcat Mountain; which they have since 2011.
