Rick reported that Paulding has now blocked the trail at the Willow Springs bridge.
That would be ~ mile 26.

Does that mean the trail is open from the Cobb line to mile 26?🤣

The trail is open from the zero mile marker 26.
Cobb county is in great shape with all debris cleared and the trail blown clean.
There is a lot of small junk, sticks and pine cones mostly, in Paulding County.
There are still a couple of icy spots on bridges.

Did he say how they blocked the trail or with what?

Traffic cones or barriers perhaps, or something more formidable preventing physical access?

Tim,
[Sunday afternoon]
Rick said it is blocked and being patrolled.
Between 27-29 mile marks, so many trees down it is impossible to ride.
"Strictly, bike n' hike", his words.

"Being Patrolled, impossible to ride", sounds like an oxymoron.

Thanks for the info Joe.

I was planning on some gravel this Thursday and would have been entering the trail 2 miles east of the Tunnel and then taking the trail eastbound.

I'll probably head to the Cohutta or Blue Ridge instead. Might not be much better.

Seldom see any patrols past Rambo.
Working at the tunnel or running the blower, it's rare that you see anyone from Paulding working or patrolling past Rambo. It's just a hard section for them to get to. Narrow tunnel for the SmartCar at US-278 or entering from McPherson Church for maintenance vehicles.
