Big Meadows Access Limited During Controlled Burn

Shenandoah National Park says access to Big Meadows will be restricted during an upcoming controlled burn. The burn will be conducted sometime during the next two weeks, depending on conditions. It’s expected to last one day and will happen in the open area across from the Byrd Visitor Center. A controlled burn is conducted every year to maintain the open vista and prevent encroachment of trees and shrubs.
