***NOTE  from Roan Mountain State Park: Due to damage sustained during a flood event on the Doe River, there are two trail bridges in the park that are no longer available. The bridge connecting the wetland boardwalk trail to Picnic Shelter 2 is gone, as is the bridge connecting the Group Camp area to the Riverside Trail. Walking access along the western bank of the Doe River is still available via the Riverside Trail access point from Picnic Shelter 2 or via the Fred Behrend Trail access behind the Camp Store in the Campground. Thank you for your patience as we work to replace these bridges.
