Knox Mountain Drive closing for winter
Knox Mountain Drive is closing to public vehicles for winter as of Friday, Nov. 9 due to cooler temperatures and changing winter conditions.
The park trails will remain open to those on foot or bike from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Park users are advised to be cautious as the road and pathways will not be cleared of snow or ice throughout the winter.
Knox Mountain Drive closes annually due to poor driving conditions. Precipitation and colder temperatures cause the roadway to become increasingly hazardous. The road will remain closed to public vehicles until the spring of 2019.
Park users are reminded to keep their dogs on-leash, except once inside the off-leash dog park south of Knox Mountain Drive.
