Trails Closure Warning:
>Falls Creek Trail (#31) is Closed.
>Hospital Rock Trail (#30) is Closed 1.1 Miles after Trail Head. It now ends at the rock formation referred to as Hospital Rock.
>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.
