Elkmont Area Trail Closures During Demolition Project

Great Smoky Mountains National Park officials have announced the following schedule update for the Elkmont Historic District demolition project:

Beginning Monday, April 10th, the Little River Trail will be closed from the trailhead to the junction with Cucumber Gap Trail to all use Monday through Friday until May 5, 2017. All campsites and shelters in the backcountry will remain open and can be accessed using routes that do not include the closed section of the Little River Trail.

The Jakes Creek Trail will be closed from the trailhead to the junction with the Cucumber Gap Trail to all use Monday through Friday from May 8, 2017 through May 26, 2017. All campsites/shelters in the backcountry will remain open and can be accessed using routes that do not include the closed section of the Jakes Creek Trail.

Please note that both trails will be fully open on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the work project.

Of course there are many other great hiking options in the Great Smoky Mountains. Here's my list of the Top 10 Hikes in the park if you need some suggestions for your upcoming trip.
