Shenandoah National Park staff manages almost 200,000 acres of public land. This includes the scenic mountain roadway Skyline Drive, over 500 miles of hiking trails and 80,000 acres of Wilderness.
Under the mission of the National Park Service, our purpose as stewards of the park is "to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations." Contact our administrative staff and offices with your questions and concerns.
