Nantahala National Forest officials announced this afternoon that the Left Loop of the Tsali Trail system is currently closed due to a slide along the trail. The other 3 loops in the trail system will remain open. The Forest Service will work to evaluate and repair damage to the trail and issue an alert when the trail is reopened.
Located near Fontana Lake, Tsali Recreation Area is nationally known for its 42-mile trail system. The four-loop network is open to hikers and horses, but the system is best known as a challenging mountain bike course.
