Welcome to our page. We are delighted you came to visit and thank you for your support of the New River Trail!
Please see the attached map of anticipated trail closure locations and dates!
Update from NRT:
Parts of the New River Trail are closed due to major renovation work that necessitated the closing of several bridges along the trail. The work is part of a three-phase project that will take several months to complete. The project will impact the following sections of the trail:
Cat Hole Bridge: Renovations will begin on September 25, 2023, and will require a trail closure from Fries Junction to Fries Rd. This closure is anticipated to last about a month.
Ivanhoe River Bridge: Renovations are underway and will require a closure from the Ivanhoe access to the Austinville access. This closure will likely be in place through the end of November.
US 52 Bridge: Renovations are underway and will require a temporary lane closure on US 52; however, no trail closure is anticipated.
Galax to Cliffview: This section of trail is now open.
Double Shoals Bridge: This section of trail is now open.
Fries School Bridge: This section of trail is now open.
If you have questions, please call the park office at 276-699-6778. Updates and information will be posted here as the project proceeds.
