Short Section of Blue Ridge Parkway Closes Near Asheville

A short section of the Blue Ridge Parkway has closed south of Asheville, North Carolina, near Mt. Pisgah has closed indefinitely due to the danger of a landslide, thank to recent heavy rains.  Hopefully, all but a mile of the parkway near Ferrin Knob Tunnel No. 1 will reopen by Friday (section around Milepost 400).

To reach the beautiful section of the Parkway south of Mt. Pisgah, travelers from Asheville can take NC 280 (Airport exit on I-26) to Brevard, then drive the beautiful Forest Heritage Scenic Byway (see our guide) via U.S. 276 through Pisgah National Forest to the Parkway. From NC 280 as you enter the Brevard area, turn right on U.S. 276 at the shopping center with Wal-Mart. You will pass Looking Glass Falls and Cradle of Forestry and other great hikes and stops along the way. It’s a beautiful 15 mile drive from Brevard to the Parkway.

For more on what to see and do along the Parkway, see our Blue Ridge Parkway Guide.
