Alerts & Notices

The Roses Creek Road (FS Road # 210) will be closed for construction from August 25th through October 30th for construction.  This will limit public access to the Table Rock Picnic Area to just the northern route through Ginger Cake Road (state road 1265) to Table Rock Road.

The Simpson Creek Watershed Improvement project was developed to provide aquatic organism passage and reduce erosion and sedimentation.  The project will be replacing undersize culverts with larger, natural bottomed structures to facilitate passage of aquatic organisms on Simpson Creek and tributaries of Simpson Creek.  Restoration of aquatic habitat and watershed heath are both themes of the Grandfather Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Project (CFLR).  For more information about the CFLR Project please visit http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/nfsnc/home/?cid=stelprdb5356937 .

A wide variety of partners are collaborating with the Forest Service on the CFLR Project, including the Southern Blue Ridge Fire Learning Network, N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, N.C. Forest Service, The Nature Conservancy, Wild South, Trout Unlimited, Land-of-Sky Regional Council, MountainTrue, National Wild Turkey Federation, North Carolina State Parks, The Wilderness Society, National Park Service, Western Carolina University, Appalachian Design, Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Association, Friends of Wilson Creek, Friends of Linville Gorge, and The Foothills Conservancy.
