May 10, 2022 - Peregrine falcons have returned to their nest at the top of Castle Rock on Kingsbury Grade. Climbers and hikers can help protect these majestic birds by avoiding the area during the nesting season, which is approximately April through July in the Lake Tahoe Basin, but can fluctuate depending on the weather. Signs are posted in the area to alert visitors of nest sensitivity and will be updated once the nesting period is over.
