Blue Ridge Parkway trail closures

Virtual Blue Ridge is reporting a couple of trail closings off the Blue Ridge Parkway you may want to be aware of.

The first closure will impact the Mt. Pisgah Trail tomorrow.

The television broadcasting tower located at the top of Mt. Pisgah is scheduled to undergo upgrading of select antennas, which will require the closure of the viewing platform as well as the immediate area surrounding the TV tower. The closure will occur tomorrow, October 6, and will reopen the next day. The trail is located at Mile Post 407.6.

Virtual Blue Ridge is also reporting that a portion of the Boone Fork Trail from the western access in the Julian Price Memorial Park Campground to the agricultural lease (about 1,800 feet) will be closed beginning on October 4, 2010. The trail will be closed for approximately one week to allow for the construction of a wastewater system improvements. The public is advised to avoid the area for safety purposes and to prevent delays in construction.
