Deep Creek footbridge is washed out

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

This is from the Smokies park website:

The footbridge crossing Deep Creek near the junction of Deep Creek Trail and Pole Road Creek Trail is washed out. Fording Deep Creek during periods of high water is very difficult.

On the map below, the (former) location of the bridge is in between campsites 55 and 56:

As I recall, that was a very high bridge. Deep Creek must have been running extremely high to wipe it out. I wouldn't want to cross there.
