WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) - The Daniel Boone National Forest says the Gladie Visitor Center in the Red River Gorge is closing on Wednesday for the winter and will reopen in early March.

Anyone needing visitor information for the gorge such as maps, passes and firewood permit can find them at the forest’s nearby Stanton office, Morehead office and Winchester office.

District Ranger Jon Kazmierski of the Cumberland Ranger District says there aren’t many visitors at the Gladie center during the winter and the road there can be hazardous to travel in winter weather.

The Stanton office is located at 705 W. College Ave. in Stanton across from Powell County High School. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays. For more information, call (606) 663-0576, extension 150.
