In support of Governor Lee’s Executive Order 23, we have made the difficult decision to close Tennessee State Parks. This closure is effective April 4, 2020 and running through April 14, 2020 Visit our Keeping Visitors Healthy page for more info.
Flint Creek Trail Closed to All Park Visitors until April 11th 2020.
Flint Creek Trail is Closed at the Rocky Fork Creek crossing, where the new metal bridge is located. No access to battle site, A.T., or the trail past that point. Staff is working VERY HARD despite the weather to get the metal bridge and ramps done ASAP.
For Public Safety: We are asking all our park visitors to obey the closure signage, not walk on the metal bridge, and not walk on our stone block retaining walls. They are not stable until we fill them in with gravel. Thank You For Your Patience & Cooperation!
A.T. & A.T. Access Trail will need to be accessed either via the Flint Mountain Trail or Rocky Fork Trail -> White Oak Flats Trail -> Headwaters Trail -> Blockstand Creek Trail -> Flint Mountain Trail -> A.T. Access Trail.
In the interest of public health, Tennessee State Parks are cancelling all park-hosted events from March 16 to April 15, 2020. Parks remain open to visitors at this time.
