US 441 (Newfound Gap Rd) will be closing this evening at 7:00 PM on account of the High Wind Warning. Winds out of the south will produce gusts of 70+ mph this evening and into Wednesday morning. Rain showers have the potential to be heavy at times.
No closure has been announced for Cherokee Orchard yet, so hikers could still have access to Rainbow Falls Trail on the mountain’s northern side.
We will continue to provide road/trail updates as we receive them.
