Trail closings for Cosby Camprground area

A couple weeks ago Smokies officials announced plans for a repaving project for the Cosby Campground as part of the federal stimulus plan.

Yesterday, on the Smokies website, officials announced that trailhead access from the Cosby Campground to Lower Mount Cammerer Trail, Snake Den Ridge Trail, and Low Gap Trail will also be closed due to the project.

The closing begins on Labor Day, September 7, 2009.

Although trailhead access within the campground will be closed, these trails will remain open and hikers will be able to access them via connecting trails from the nearby Picnic Area parking lots.
