Trail and Road Closures in Bent Creek

posted in: WNC Hiking, WNC Mountain Biking | 1

As another round of logging activity takes places in the Bent Creek area, more trails and roads will be closed. Fortunately, most of the activity takes place to the North of the favorite riding areas.

Rice Pinnacle Road and North Boundary Road will be closed during the week until 5:30 PM each day. This closure is expected to last 5 – 8 weeks. The road will be open on weekends and holidays, but watch out for construction equipment and rough spots. Work will be to “daylight” the road (clear overhanging trees), re-grading and dropping gravel. While the road is closed, the only access to the upper end of the Green’s Lick trail will be out-and-back via the same path.

Be sure to check out the notices posted at trailhead kiosks in Bent Creek as well.
