Clingmans Dome Road to open again next week

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

If all goes as planned, Clingmans Dome Road in Great Smoky Mountains National Park will re-open next Wednesday, April 1.

Of course the higher elevations in the park can still experience early spring snow storms which could delay the opening. If you're planning on visiting this area of the park during the first couple of weeks in April, it's a good idea to pay a visit to the park's website to make sure there are no temporary closures.

The opening of Clingmans Dome Road opens up access for trails such as the Sugarland Mountain Trail, Fork Ridge Trail, Spruce-Fir Trail, Noland Divide and Andrews Bald.
