Pisgah National Forest

CLOSURE: Sliding Rock, base of Looking Glass Falls, Sycamore Flats Picnic Area, & Davidson River Road – Pisgah National Forest 

Closures include Sliding Rock, the base of Looking Glass Falls, Sycamore Flats Picnic Area, and Davidson River Road (FS 475). A dozen log jams have been found on the popular tubing route between Coontree Picnic Area and the currently closed Sycamore Flats Picnic Area. Entire channels have been changed by this event and for now we’d advise finding an alternate location to enjoy the water, for your safety and the safety of emergency responders.
