Important: We received notice from the Forest Service that FS 58 will be partially closed on 9/26/23, This impacts visiting Long Creek Falls and also Three Forks Area hiking trails. They are closing the road about 3.3 miles in to do road repair. You can still access Long Creek and Three Forks Area from the south, but is a considerable re-route if you are coming from Blue Ridge. This is a Tuesday so shouldn't be too bad of an impact.
Remember you can get and keep up with updated information on road closures and openings by visiting the US Forest Service Website. Announcements are in the upper right-hand corner of the page
