Although the Parson Branch Road in Cades Cove was scheduled to reopen yesterday, the Great Smoky Mountains website is reporting that the road is now tentatively scheduled to reopen later on this afternoon.
The road was closed on Tuesday as a result of mud.
With more heavy rain and thunderstorms on the way this afternoon, it's very likely that the road could remain closed even longer than expected.
Closure of the Parson Branch Road impacts people wishing to hike the Gregory Bald Trail and the Hannah Mountain Trail.
