Virginia – Catawba Mountain Fire Road Temporarily Closed to Hikers Beginning Jan. 17



Roadwork to improve the Catawba Mountain Fire Road near McAfee Knob for emergency vehicle use will require the road to be temporarily closed to hikers and all public use beginning Monday, January 17 through February 11.  During this road closure, hikers will continue to be able to use the Appalachian National Scenic Trail (A.T.) to access McAfee Knob and beyond.

This roadwork is weather-dependent and will be done only during daylight hours. We will update this post should additional information become available, and when road improvement work has been completed.
