    Rocky Knob Park Closure?

    I see that the Rocky Knob Park was closed due to weather back on Dec 6th. Does anyone know if it has opened back up again. Any information or links to current trail conditions would be greatly appreciated.

    Rocky Knob Park is still closed. The blog you referenced and the following twitter site will be updated when the land manager (Watauga County) removes the closure signs from the trailhead. Prior to the closure in December the trails were ridden in horrible conditions. There are deep ruts in several places. https://twitter.com/rockyknobpark

    Rocky Knob likely will not open again till spring. Freez/Thaw cycles are very hard on trails and the and manager and supporting club are protecting the investment made into the trail system (real money and lots of volunteer work).

    I'm assuming since the Kerr Scott trails never close like surrounding areas, that when they get a chance, they update it just to let you know how bad it might be or is. It looks like they updated it yesterday, and then the one before that was the "freeze/thaw" post, which happens every winter and everybody should be aware of.
