Most of the Parkway is closed during the winter. I've driven on the parkway with six inches of snow on it, and I've been barricaded out during 70 degree temperatures. So don't rely on the weather; call the Info line at 828-298-0398 to find out if it will be closed. This is the intersection of the Parkway with NC 215. Just up the road behind that gate is the Devil's Courthouse area, and just beyond that is Black Balsam and then Graveyard Fields.
