TRAVEL ADVISORY

The following trails are closed until further notice due to damage from Hurricane Zeta: Upper Jones Gap, and Tom Miller. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Cold temperatures and ice have forced the seasonal closure of the yellow-blazed, western section of the Rim of the Gap Trail (between junction with trails 15-Frank Coggins, and 21-John Sloan). This section of trail will remain closed until spring temperatures are consistently warm enough for the ice to melt and the trail to become safely passable.   If you have any questions, please contact the park directly.

PARK HOURS:  9 a.m. to 6 p.m., daily

There are new parking procedures put in place at Jones Gap.  Please read this document for detailed information.
