The NPS and contractor have agreed on a plan to do the paving of the
Cherokee Orchard Loop and the Rainbow Falls parking area. This work
will begin tomorrow morning, May 25 and go through noon on May 28.
This will result in limited access to areas accessed by the road and limited
parking at Rainbow Falls. The contractor will be making an effort to
reserve space for LeConte Lodge overnight guests in the parking area.
There may be delays getting to and from the Rainbow Falls parking area
on these days of up to 30 minutes each way.
