On the recommendation of the Conservation Committee, the Board has voted to close the Eldorado Community Preserve to all rock-climbing activities pending damage assessment and restoration. This action was taken in response to rock climbers leaving permanent anchors and other fixtures as well as chalk on the rocks in archaeologically and ecologically sensitive areas and establishing unauthorized “social trails" in the Preserve.


*The Preserve remains open to all approved activities (hiking, biking, horseback riding) by Eldorado residents on the official designated trails.
