Great Smoky Mountains National Park announces that Clingmans Dome Road will be closed for construction work from Monday, September 13 until Saturday morning, September 18. I hope no one is thinking of starting the MST or of hiking from the top of Clingmans Dome next week.
Since the Park has been blessed with stimulus money, they are building and repairing like mad. Other trails are affected as well. Check all the closings.
