Several roads within the Chattahoochee National Forest are unsafe and impassable because of damage caused by excessive rainfall amounts.
All forest visitors should use extreme caution when travelling within the national forest, as heavy rains may present flooding, downed trees, road wash-outs, and mudslides. Visitors are encouraged to check local weather forecasts and the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests’ website for safety alerts.
Forest Service engineers and other personnel are actively assessing road and resource damage as conditions allow, and will work to reopen these temporarily closed roads as soon as they can be made safe for travelers.
Current closures and alerts (updated 1/28/2016) are at http://www.fs.usda.gov/detailfull/conf/alerts-notices/?cid=fseprd487668&width=full,
