Duke Energy Replacing Line in Nantahala Gorge

A section of the Bartram Trail on the Nantahala National Forest will be closed while Duke Energy replaces a line in the Nantahala Gorge starting September 28. Work is anticipated to be completed by November 20.
The trail will be closed Mondays through Thursdays and then open for the weekend, Fridays through Sundays until the work is complete. The trail will be closed at the Beechertown put-in off Wayah Road and at the bottom of Winding Stairs Road. Hikers will be re-routed to follow Hwy 19 for a short span before reaching the trail past the closed section.
