Chimney Tops Trail reopens for the weekend


GATLINBURG (WATE) – The Chimney Tops Trail is back open for the weekend.

The trail closed in January after flooding destroyed a pedestrian bridge at the beginning of the trail.

Over the last few weeks, crews have worked to replace it.

Since the area is environmentally sensitive, builders had to use mostly hand-operated equipment and pulleys.

A second phase of rehab for the trail starts on Monday, closing the trail every Monday through Thursday until October 17.
