  • Pisgah RD seasonal road closures

    Pisgah Forest, NC, December 20, 2018 - Pisgah National Forest officials offer a reminder that several roads on the Pisgah Ranger District listed below are prone to temporary closures during snowy and icy conditions late fall through spring.

    After temporary weather closures, roads will be reopened after they dry out. These temporary closures reduce road maintenance costs and protect public safety during adverse weather.

    Drivers should be careful on all gravel roads during freeze-thaw cycles because the roads are especially susceptible to damage which could lead to long-term closures.

    Certain roads are seasonally closed to motorized vehicles to help protect wildlife habitat and decrease wildlife disturbance. On all Forest Service roads, emergency closures due to weather or resource conditions can occur at any time.
