Ahhhh, the sunshine is finally coming out. Hopefully the warm spell will help thaw things out around here. The mountain was full of activity yesterday. The 22 degrees did not keep day hikers from making the 5 mile trek up the mountain. Highway 441 opened just in time to give access to Alum Cave trail. The park service is currently working on getting Highway 441 opened this morning. You can call 865-436-1200 to find out road conditions. The road leading to Bullhead, Rainbow, and Trillium are all open. Due to the low of 12 last night, there will be plenty of ice on the trail. If you decide to hike up, please make sure you have ice walkers and good warm clothing.
