The Mountains Press reports the Smokies have closed Clingmans trail to repave the trail.

The tower and trail will reopen next season as usual. Clingmans usually closes Nov. 30 for the season.

The parking lot will remain open and portaboddies will replace the closed restrooms.

Hikers may still access the Appalachian Trail and the other hiking trails normally reached from the Clingmans Dome area, but will have to get to them via the Forney Ridge Trail head which is located immediately adjacent to the parking lot.
