This is a great place that people need to really give a shot. You'll explore some really nice spots. The scenery at the top of the dam is gorgeous! There's another trail that goes a bit higher but I didn't get the chance to explore that area. Next time!

for updates on the reopening https://www.sccgov.org/sites/parks/parkfinder/pages/uvascanyon.aspx. I'm really going to miss it this year.

This is a tough hike, but makes for a great backpacking trip. Few people make it to the lake so you are likely to get some solitude. The fishing is great at Mississippi Lake too! Here is a trip report I wrote for my trek to Mississippi Lake: https://backpackersreview.wordpress.com/trip-reports/henry-coe-mississippi-lake/

Park is closed. Roads washed out.

A couple of strenuous climbs, but completely worth the view you get along Blue Ridge Rd. There are plenty of hawks to keep you company. The creek is also beautiful even in the summer and worth poking around if you have time. Most of this trail is downhill and a bit hard on the feet - I had to run the steeper parts. Finished in 6 hours, "short cut" took me 36 minutes.

Great hike. First part is quite challenging going up the hill and then "sliding" down the road ( so steep). Coming back on flat frog trail is uneventful for the first part thru the forest but after about .7 mile you'll start enjoy unbeatable views and surrounding scenery for reminder of the hike.
