According to the Forest Service, Avery Creek Road (FR 477) beyond the riding stables up to Buckhorn Gap and Wash Creek Road (FR 5000) from North Mills River Campground up to the road to Trace Ridge trailhead are still currently closed. This cuts off access to the lower ends of the Buckhorn Gap and Avery Creek trails. The Trace Ridge trailhead is still accessible from the Parkway side. There is no word on a re-opening date for these roads, and other can be closed at any time, so always call ahead and have a backup plan if the trail you’re headed to is inaccessible!
