  • Status Update on Hurricane Florence Closures

    In order to provide access to the public as safety and resource conditions allow, U.S. Forest Service staff across North Carolina are currently assessing conditions of roads and recreation sites that were closed due to Hurricane Florence.

    Impacts to National Forest lands and facilities varied across the state. Because of this range of impacts, anticipated re-opening dates vary by Forest. Below are a list of anticipated re-opening dates for roads and recreation sites.

    These dates may vary depending on the results of local assessments. Some roads may remain closed to protect public safety or until conditions dry out to reduce resource damage. Visitors are strongly encouraged to contact the local district office for an updated list of closures before visiting the Forest.
