Forest road closures
Just a quick update for the riding in our area..........Checked with the Forest Service last week and there are still a few road closures that affect the Dirty Dozen rides. Currently the Mt. Mitchell and Pisgah rides have some road closures on them that require significant detours. On the Mt Mitchell ride, FS63 (Stony Fork Rd.) is closed and will probably be closed most of the summer for repairs. The easiest detour would be to continue thru Barnardsville to hwy 19/23 south back to Asheville. On the Pisgah ride, FS5000 (Wash Creek Rd.) is currently closed and may also be closed most of the summer. The detour would be to stay on the Blue Ridge Parkway north to Asheville. There may be other road closures as well, but these are the ones I know of that affect the Dirty Dozen rides. Thanks!
