Greenbrier Area Of The GSMNP To Be Closed For Repairs
Great Smoky Mountains National Park officials announced Friday that access to the Greenbrier area of the park will be closed effective Monday February 13th. Greenbrier Road will be closed at Highway 321 to allow contractors to repair road damage and replace washed out culverts caused by flooding that happened in July 2022. Due to that closure access to all trails and campsites in the Greenbrier area will not be able to be accessed by the public. The road at the Greenbrier Ranger station has been closed since that flooding happened last July. Park officials say that even after Greenbrier road and those areas reopen, Ramsey Cascades and Porters Creek trails will remain closed until footlog bridges damaged during the flooding can be replaced and any other trail damage can be addressed for visitor safety. Weather permitting, park officials expect to have Greenbrier Road reopened by March 31.
