Blue Ridge Parkway constructionMay 2014: Parkway Fully Reopens!
The section of the Parkway north of Asheville (includes the Craggy Gardens area) under repairs reopened May 1! The section of the Parkway from Milepost 376 at Ox Creek Road to Milepost 355, near the entrance to Mt. Mitchell State Park, was closed for stabilization work on a failed slope just north of Tanbark Ridge Tunnel at Milepost 374, the site of last summer’s well-known “crack.” With this repair project complete approximately three weeks ahead of schedule, all 469 miles of Parkway motor road are now open for visitor access and enjoyment. The popular Craggy Gardens Picnic Area and Visitor Center, at Milepost 364, which had been closed during this repair project, will open May 9, 2014, along with the majority of other Parkway facilities reopening for the season on that date.

Graveyard Fields Closed mid April until early July
Graveyard Fields hiking and waterfalls will be closed for 11 weeks beginning April 22 for repairs. Read more.
