Flood Damage Repair at Linville Falls

At the request of the Blue Ridge Parkway Maintenance out of Gillespie Gap, the Crabtree Falls FRIENDS of the BRP Chapter and the NC High Peaks Trail Association assisted in the cleanup of flood damage at Linville Falls on Monday, June 25, 2018. Eleven members and friends of the chapter worked on this project. The team had two goals:

  1. Remove flood debris from the upper falls overlook area
  2. Upright seven stone columns toppled and displaced by the flood

The team worked closely with three Parkway employees to get all this work done safely.

They used rock bars and a hoist to reposition and upright the columns.

Parkway Maintenance will install new railings to keep the public a safe distance from the river just above the falls.
