Dickey Ridge Visitor Center at mile 4.6 has both a movie and an interactive exhibit designed to introduce you to your Shenandoah experience. From the wide-angle view of our overlooks, to an up-close examination of nature, this exhibit is a great appetizer to the delights of the park.
Also at Byrd you'll find a selection of movies including Shenandoah, The Gift.
All along Skyline Drive, and at most developed areas you will find panels and bulletin boards with additional information about Shenandoah’s hot topics. On your next visit to Shenandoah, spend some time getting to know your national park!
You can hike (4 miles round trip or a 7.4-mile loop) to Rapidan Camp. Get a map of the Rapidan Camp area here.
