Status of Parsons Branch Rd and Rich Mtn Rd ?

What is the current status of Parsons Branch Rd and Rich Mtn Rd in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park?

I've called the park service and the recording states that only Heintooga Ridge is currently closed. I can't seem to find the "trick" to speak to a living/breathing ranger. Anybody ridden these roads recently?

Parsons Branch scheduled for late spring?????

Rich Mountain Road should be open - schedule says March 13.

look here

For future reference 828-497-1904 should be the Oconoluftee Visitors Center on the NC side of the park and 865-436-1200should get you to the main number and allow you to get to a real, live person (at least in a perfect world).
