There are just two days until Cecil Ashburn Drive closes for months for road widening.
Thousands of drivers will be impacted, and hikers will also soon feel the impact of the construction. The Blevins Gap Trailhead will be closed starting Monday due to the road closure.
Hikers say they are sad that some trails are being affected, and many came out today to hike one last time before the road closure.
There are alternate access points to the trails.
Instead of the Blevins Gap Trailhead, you can take “Smoke Rise” at the end of Valley Bend Drive or take the trail entrance at the end of Sugar Tree Place.
