I don't know why the road was closed today but your pictures of tatham gap look like there are to many leaves on the trees to be recent so the road could be closed for short term or long term and the tag is not back at the smoke house I was just posting my attempt to grab the tag today.

The road closure on the Robbinsville side to Tatham Gap is seasonal and will re-open about the 1st of April.. The closure on the Andrews side is long term (at least 3 years) and was caused by the road sliding off.

tag bump

I think you were on the wrong end of the road. If you go to the andrews end the sign is visibable before you get to the closed gate. you can get the grab picture without going thru the gate. there are several ways to get on the trail, only the old oregonal route has the correct sign.

Grab Attempt #2

So I rode my other bike today down to Andrews NC and on my way to the tag I got stopped by this locked gate.



Here's a close up of the sign on the left looks like the roads been closed since March 5, 2013 and won't open until March 1, 2015



So I turned around stopped here.



Took a close up picture of the sign.


Then stopped back at the start of the road from the Andrews NC side.


And the other direction of the previous picture.


So what do we do now I don't think a situation like this is in the rules?

You're right,, the current tag pic is in the Tatham Gap.. Both ends of the road are gated right now.. The Robbinsville side will re-open in about 2 weeks,, but the Andrews side won't be open for several years.

I have zero authority, but this photo is good enough for me to call it a "grab".

Game on!

The Andrews side is closed because of a slide that damaged the road.. The Robbinsville side is closed during the Winter to hopefully prevent road damage.
