Rockfish is the southern entrance to Shenandoah National Park. From here you can travel north through Shenandoah National Park. Be sure to notice the mile markers. Use those to find dining, lodging, visitor centers, trailheads, and more. You are starting at mile 105; numbers will descend as you travel north. The first 20 miles or so will be through the quietest part of the Park with beautiful vistas overlooking federally designated wilderness. The Loft Mountain area at mile 79.5 is a great place to stop for food, restrooms, and souvenirs.
