Ramsey Cascades Trail has been reopened following the installation of a new foot log. The trail has been closed since August 2016 when the foot log was damaged by a fallen tree. The foot log spans a section of Ramsey Prong which is too swift and deep to allow hikers to safely rock-hop across the river.

The four-mile trail is located in the Greenbrier section of the park and leads to the park's tallest waterfall, Ramsey Cascades.
