Knox Mountain Drive to partially open Tuesday

Now that springtime temperatures have arrived, the bottom half of Knox Mountain Drive will be open to traffic starting March 28th.

The gate to the first lookout will open at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday morning with the upper half of Knox Mountain Drive set to open in two weeks, weather permitting.

Knox Mountain Drive is open to vehicles 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and noon to 9 p.m. on Sundays. Knox Mountain Park is open daily between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Portions of the Apex Trail between the first lookout and the peak are currently closed for maintenance. The work will wrap up this week and the trail will be fully open to the public by April 1.

For the safety of all park users and wildlife, dog owners are reminded that dogs must be on-leash when in the park. Owners are reminded to bring bags to pick up after their dogs and to properly dispose of the waste in a garbage bin.

Residents are also reminded that smoking is prohibited in all City parks.
