Road and Trail Closures


Road Closures

Several ongoing maintenance projects have caused road closures that will be in effect during 2016. See details of current projects at the bottom of the page.

The Blue Ridge Parkway Road Closure Map provides real time road closure/condition information. This feature may be particularly helpful when winter weather conditions force temporary and fast-changing closures. In other seasons of the year, storms can sometimes cause temporary closures due to downed trees or debris.

Trail Closures

Dobie Mountain Trail at Humpback Rocks in VA (Milepost 6) is closed.
• Sharp Top Trail (Milepost 86) will be closed on weekdays from July 18 through September 1, 2016. The trail will be closed from the Nature Center near the Peaks of Otter Visitor Center to the intersection with the Summit Loop Trail near the Sharp Top Bus Shelter. The trail will be open on weekends. More information...
