FAQ

How can I find out if the trails are open/closed?

Trail status can be checked via the status light at top of any page (Green indicates Open Trails, Red indicates Closed Trails), or by calling Guest Services at 704.391.3900.

Why do you close the trails?

We close the trails to preserve the health of the trail system and for trail maintenance. This is the most sustainable way to operate trails with a high use pattern.

Can I still hike or run if the trails are closed?

When the trails are closed it means they are closed to all traffic. By keeping traffic off of the trails we allow the trails to rebound faster.
