GREENEVILLE-US Forest Service officials at the Cherokee National Forest recommend the use of high clearance vehicles to visit Rocky Top.

Unaka District Ranger, Terry Bowerman said, "With the work done on the southern portion of Forest Road 402 coming from Del Rio, getting to Rocky Top is a little easier now.  Even so, this is a typical high mountain road, and we recommend using high clearance vehicles to make your way to Rocky Top Gap.

"The northern section of Forest Road 402 coming from Bridgeport is very rough in spots and only high clearance four wheel drive vehicles are recommended."
