We are looking at hiking from Standing Indian Campground near Franklin to Fontana Dam in June. I've heard that there have been some road closings in the area that may affect the route we would take to get from one location to the other (have to take a detour).
Is this the case, or can I just use the standard directions given by my GPS? If so, what route do we take? Our "ride" will be spending the night in Robbinsville and picking us up at the dam early in the morning, then dropping us at Standing Indian. Will he be able to drive from there straight to the dam using the standard GPS directions?
I've been to Standing Indian many times, but I've never driven from Fontana Dam to there. Our initial "trip" will be a drive from South Georgia, can we just use GPS directions straight to the dam?
Hopefully these road closures are just rumors, but I thought it'd be best to ask before we head out. Thank you for your help.
