(WSPA) – Portions of the Blue Ridge Parkway have been closed in anticipation of high winds and heavy rains from the remnants of Hurricane Nate, according to the Blue Ridge Parkway’s Facebook page.
They say these conditions increase the risk of rock slides, falling trees, and debris.
The closures include:
- Milepost 355.2 (Mt. Mitchell State Park) – 382 (Folk Art Center), including access to the Craggy Gardens Area
- Milepost 411.5 (US Route 276) – 469, including access to Waterrock Knob
Access to Mt. Pisgah will remain available, according to the post on Facebook.
The Pisgah Inn and Mt. Pisgah Campground will also be open.
These closures are for everyone, including cyclists and hikers, the post says.
