Yes if you want to risk being arrested.

All trails, whether accessible from Hwy 441 or not, are closed during the government shutdown and, as stated above, you can get cited and fined for hiking on any closed trails.

Please, for the sake of the few park security rangers who are working without pay right now, do not attempt to hike while the trails are still closed.

Yes there are many trails accessible off of 441 and I wouldn't blame anyone for trying to hike them. It would probably be unlikely you would get caught but you would need to have someone drop you off and pick you up.

5588paul,

Drove on 441 today. Scenic pull-offs are open for viewing. Pull-offs for for trail heads are closed and blocked with cones. Although that hasn't stopped people from parking on the side of the road and walking to them. We drove over to Cherokee and went to Mango falls on Cherokee reservation outside of National Park. I would highly recommend it, short steep walk up the stairs, big payoff. More later if I find any other trails.
