Road Closures in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Currently Newfound Gap Road (441) which runs through the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park connecting Cherokee NC and Gatlinburg TN remains closed due to snow and ice and is may not reopen today due to exceptionally cold weather that is expected all day.

There are some additional roads in the Great Smoky Mountains national park that just closed which are:

  • The Foothills Parkway East connecting 321 to I40 in Cosby TN
  • Cherokee Orchard Road in the Roaring Fork area adjacent to the city of Gatlinburg TN
  • The Cataloochee Entrance Road - Maggie Valley North Carolina
  • Old Route 284 connecting Big Creek and Cataloochee

Some roads that are still open in the Great Smoky mountains National Park and the surrounding areas have light snow and ice and we urge all drivers to be extremely careful.
