I'm going to try and get back before the February Falcon closing and do it this time.
Thanks again for all the comments and suggestions.
Check with the park to verify, but Mariscal Canyon and Casa Grande were removed from the closure list a few years ago.
Peregrine Falcon Closures

The Rio Grande canyons contain critical peregrine falcon habitat. To minimize disturbance on nesting falcons, the NPS closes the following areas between February 1 and May 31:

The areas closed to public entry from February 1 through May 31 are:

    * The Southeast Rim Trail and a portion of the Northeast Rim Trail from the Boot Canyon/Southeast Rim junction to a point just north of Campsite NE-4.

    * All Southeast Rim campsites as well as Northeast (NE) campsites 4 and 5 are closed during this period.

Technical rock climbing on rock faces within ? mile of known peregrine eyries, as posted, will not be allowed between February 1 and May 31.

The park does not plan to close any other areas but restrictions may be modified if Peregrine behavior or nesting sites do not follow traditional trends.
