Cedar Rock Trail Updates

Cedar Rock Climber Access Changes
at Butter Gap: Pisgah Area SORBA recently spearheaded a major rerouting of the Butter Gap Trail, causing some nice improvements to sustainability, as well as some minor changes for climber access. Changes for climbers are listed below.
North Cedar:
From Butter Gap (pictured) take the new Butter Gap
Trail for just a few minutes until it leads to a knoll with
the unmarked old Art Loeb Trail on your right and a
nice camping spot as marked on the map. Once here,
look for the faint unmarked climbers path on the left

Eagle Rock Parking Closure

We have some sad news to share about Eagle Rock.  The Chimney Rock State Park parking area at Eagle Rock is closed as of this week. The access road at the end of Shumont Rd crosses private property and never had guaranteed access.  Climbing is still open, but currently only accessible by parking at Buffalo Creek and hiking 10 miles on the Weed Patch Mountain Trail. We realize this is not very feasible for climbing access.
