Temporary Closure of Proctor Ridge Horse Trail
Contact: Wallace Linder, 423-569-2404 ext 321
The National Park Service, along with volunteers, is in the process of re-routing eroded sections of the Proctor Ridge horse trail in the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. During this process, the trail will need to be closed while the work is being performed. This project will improve water quality, ensure better protection to a variety of species that live in the areas streams, and also improve visitor safety.
