CURRENT TRAIL CONDITIONS & CLOSURES:

CLOSURE (1/23/22): All single track trails at Rocky Top are CLOSED due to mud. Closure protects fragile trails and lands from damage. Rocky Top trails will likely re-open on April 1, after winter damage is repaired. 

PLEASE NOTE: We will be monitoring CCC trail conditions for mud. If you find significant mud, please let us know, and turn around to prevent trail damage. Thank you!

Detailed trail conditions here.
