Should only be a couple days. folks coming from the NC side thru deals can still ride 8.5 miles of it then turn around and head back to deals gap. Tn side riders would have to ride the Cherohala skyway to get over to it.

Mother Nature sure is pissed. Hopefully the weather isn't going to be as nice as the Northeast this weekend because people will be pissed. Glad nobody got hurt when it happened.
