From Curtis Baird, C4 trail worker, 2020:
Southeastern Trust for Parks and Land (STPAL) has preserved 750 wonderful acres at their Bald Mountain Creek Preserve near Burnsville, NC. We have several great news items about this conserved land and STPAL:
1. STPAL has been amazing to work with as partners in outdoor recreation
2. STPAL land holds several boulders and STPAL is excited to have the CCC as partners to provide access to the outdoor recreation assets of the preserved land (AKA boulders).
In January 2021, it was brought to Chimney Rock State Park's and Carolina Climbers Coalition's attention that several of the boulder clusters in the Hanging Chain Boulders are on private property. The land manager of the property met with CCC representatives and Chimney Rock State Park staff to discuss property lines in relation to boulders. Chimney Rock State Park has asked boulderers not to boulder in the Hanging Chain Boulders that are on State Park Property. Contact Chimney Rock State Park with questions about this.
The CCC, National Forest, and North Carolina WIldlife Resource Commission work closely to ensure that peregrine closures provide a proper buffer for nesting peregrines and climbers.
All peregrine closures have been lifted for 2021.
Thank you for respecting Peregrine closures!
We are celebrating 25 years of access and stewardship!
