Update on Road Closures in Smokies

As a result of the devastating windstorm that struck the Smokies Thursday evening, several roads remain closed as of this morning:

• Little River Road from Metcalf Bottoms to the Townsend Wye
• Abrams Creek Campground is closed
• Parsons Branch Road
• Rich Mountain Road
• Abrams Creek Entrance Road
• Tremont Road above the Institute at Tremont

Numerous trails have also been impacted as well. I'm not sure when the park will be releasing a full list of closed trails, but I'm sure their first priority is to reopen roads. I did read that the Chestnut Top Trail received significant damage.

To keep up with the latest closures and reopenings, please visit the park temporary road closures page.
