Lincoln Gap Road Closed for the Winter

As of mid-October, the Lincoln Gap Road is closed for the winter.  If you choose to ignore the ROAD CLOSED signs, you probably won’t be able to get a tow truck to pull you back up the bank when you slide off into the woods.  The Warren side is darker, steeper, and icier!  Be prepared to walk home and recover your vehicle in the spring!
