The storm washed out half of Cedar Creek Road coming up from U.S. 64 near Cashiers. The road is closed and will be for some time. Use alternative routes to access Panthertown Valley.
Friends of Panthertown is in the process of assessing the trails to determine the extent of storm damage there. Trail users should be aware of significant risk of blocked trails and the potential for trees and branches to fall from above. Avoid parking or camping in areas where trees could fall.
