I heard that the trails were open again but it was from an unreliable source. So does anyone really know if those trails are open for wheeling?
With the exception of certain seasonal roads like Peters Mill/Taskers Gap, Potts Mountain, Stateline, etc, all GWNF roads are open year round. Flagpole, for example, does not close. The Nat Geo Trails Illustrated map does a pretty decent job of showing seasonal roads.
That said, the FS has permenantly closed many of the old favorites like Dry Run and the technical section of Dictum Ridge.
