Virtual Blue Ridge is reporting that the closure of the Mt. Pisgah Trail off the Blue Ridge Parkway has been extended until tomorrow.
The trail was originally scheduled to be closed for only one day - on Wednesday, but the project is obviously taking longer than expected.
The television broadcasting tower located atop Mt. Pisgah is undergoing an upgrade of select antennas, requiring closure of the top of the mountain to visitors.
The trail, located at Milepost 407.6, is now projected to reopen on Saturday, October 9th.
The trailhead and parking area will remain open, as will the bottom half of the trail. Hikers will be able to walk within a quarter mile of the top but will not be allowed to progress any farther.
