When do roads close for winter?

Planning to head up from SFL for some riding the last two weeks of the year.
When do the states and feds start closing forest service roads, trails etc in GA,
Al, Miss, NC. TN? I would like to do some sections of the TET, TAT, TaT, Tellico...

What do you think will be open?

Not to sound smarmy, but it depends entirely on the weather.

I ride the ones around Tellico year round, just watch your elevation and the snow/ice and have fun. Bring your warmest gear, figure about 10 degrees per 1000'.

Thanks for the replies!

Sounds promising. If there are no firm dates and it is primarily weather related then I hope for good weather up through those two weeks!!
