Blue Ridge Parkway

Blue Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Parkway is both a conduit and a destination. As the former, its 469 miles connect the southern end of Shenandoah National Park with the eastern edge of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As the latter, it’s a ribbon of parkland that stretches atop mountain ridges, through farming communities, past historic sites, alongside meadows and more. Its melding of wild, rustic and agricultural provides an overall aesthetic unique in the National Park System.
