RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina officials have closed Grandfather Mountain State Park indefinitely because of heavy snow, ice accumulation and downed trees.

State officials said Tuesday that deep drifts and downed trees make access to the park difficult and dangerous. The region had up to two feet of snowfall and an ice storm in the week before Christmas.

Mount Mitchell State Park and other high-elevation parks in western North Carolina have also been closed because of icy roadways.

Crews will be working to clear downed tress from the trails at Grandfather Mountain in the coming weeks.
