That's my surmise as well. I've seen also, about 4 or 5 all black wooly worms. That... is weird.

Forest Service Reconstructing Tunnel Ridge Road
« on: January 04, 2018, 10:50:00 PM »

Tunnel Ridge Road in the Red River Gorge is in poor condition and in need of repair. The U.S. Forest Service will temporarily close the road to all motor vehicles beginning Sunday evening, January 7th to facilitate road reconstruction.

It will remain a gravel road. The road bed is being rebuilt and drainage improved to accommodate heavy visitor use. They will allow foot traffic unless parking interferes with construction crews and/or hikers become a safety risk.

The project is expected to conclude by March 1st and Tunnel Ridge Road will reopen to motor vehicles once all work is completed. Chimney Top, Rock Bridge and Sky Bridge Roads remain open but may be closed due to inclement weather or winter road conditions. For additional information, please call the Cumberland Ranger Station at 606-784-6428.

Thanks for that update. I know where my winter hiking will take place, hopefully everything will take longer than expected and spring hiking on Auxier Ridge will be quiet as well.

I wish the Forest Service would just shut TRR to cars altogether. Or at least shut it past Grays Arch.

Exactly, hit up the user trail from Martin's Fork right up to the Auxier TH. Probably have most of that area all to yourself. I plan on doing just that before the road opens back up.
