Huh...might be storm damage? There were a lot of trees down on Curtis Creek last week that looked to have been recently cleared.

I think there's more than one but this one runs between Old Fort and the BRP.

Actually the road that they show closer to Mt Mitchell is there and connects to the one that once went straight across.

Yep...there's two gravel roads that go down to the Toe River/Black Mtn campground from the BRP but they joined together in the middle.

Here's a government forest service map from a few years ago. 482 is Curtis Creek and the blue line is the BRP.

Ooops you got your edit in while I was looking up that map.

It may be gated now...but it's been open in the past as I've ridden them from both directions.
