Did You Know?

Shenandoah National Park’s scenic highway, Skyline Drive, winds through a tunnel of trees in all their fall color glory.

Skyline Drive, the only public road through Shenandoah National Park, rides the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains for 105 miles through the park, then joins the Blue Ridge Parkway which connects Shenandoah to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, NC.
