Blue Ridge Parkway

Blue Ridge Parkway

A Blue Ridge Parkway experience is unlike any other, a slow-paced and relaxing drive revealing stunning long-range vistas and close-up views of the rugged mountains and pastoral landscapes of the Appalachian Highlands. Protecting a diversity of plants and animals, "America's Favorite Parkway" meanders for 469 miles, providing opportunities for enjoying all that makes this region of the country so special. 

Outstanding scenery and recreational opportunities make the Blue Ridge Parkway one of the most visited sections of the National Park System.  Split-rail fences, old farmsteads, mountain meadows and scenic overlooks with endless vistas make the Blue Ridge Parkway a popular attraction.  The Parkway incorporates numerous campgrounds, picnic areas and trails.
