Hannah Mountain Trail Reopens

According to the latest update on the Great Smoky Mountains Temporary Road Closures page, the Hannah Mountain Trail has reopened. The trail had been closed as a result of the tornado that swept through the far western end of Cades Cove on April 27th. Crews continue to make progress on opening the trails that were closed after more than 4500 trees were downed by the EF-4 tornado. Five trails, as well as three campsites, still remain closed at this point:

• Backcountry Campsites 3, 11, 15

• Beard Cane Trail

• Cooper Road Trail from the Beard Cane/Hatcher Mountain Trails junction to the Cades Cove Loop Road

• Hatcher Mountain Trail North of its intersection with Little Bottoms Trail

• Rabbit Creek Trail from its junction with Hannah Mountain Trail east to the junction of Abrams Falls Trailhead

• Wet Bottom Trail
