NEW HILL, NC (WTVD) -- Several days of rain have left Jordan Lake at a very high level and shut down boat ramps and some public access areas.

Officials say all the lake's public boat ramps are closed along with the Robeson Creek canoe access.

Pictures taken at the Ebenezer Church Boat Ramp on Beaver Creek Road showed the water covering the ramps and even cutting off the end of the docks from land.

Gates were closed and signs were up telling people there was no access.

Walkers at New Hope Overlook reported the water was so high that parts of the hiking trail normally well away from the water's edge were covered and they were going around.
