The Buffalo Mountain ATV trail will be closed until Sept. 15 following heavy trail maintenance to the northern section between the large narrow rock and Pinnacle Fire Tower. To give this and areas south of narrow rock time to heal, the trail is currently closed, officials say.
“I would like to thank the users in advance for cooperating with the temporary trail closure,” said Terry Bowerman, district ranger. “Help us help you by keeping traffic off the trail until mid-September. This will allow the trail to harden, making it more sustainable for future users.”
The Buffalo Mountain trail is the only ATV/UTV trail on Cherokee National Forest. It is located in Unicoi and Washington Counties.
