A major landslide has closed approximately 20 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway north of Roanoke from US Route 460 to VA 43. The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is not accessible between Salt Pond Road and Bearwallow Gap/VA 43 (NOBO miles 738.1 to 751.9), including the following trailheads:

  • Blackhorse Gap
  • Taylor’s Mountain Overlook
  • Montvale Overlook
  • Harvey’s Knob Overlook
  • Peaks of Otter Overlook
  • Mills Gap Overlook

The A.T. is still open in this area, but hikers should plan to not get on or off the Trail at any of the above access points. We will update this notice when we have more information.
