Blue Ridge Parkway Visitors Guide
Connecting the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and
Smokies National Park is the Blue Ridge Parkway.
As you travel this scenic route you will find the gorgeous
sights more than compensate for its leisurely pace. The
roadside is liberally littered with scenic views and picnic
areas, nature trails, and benches. As you pass through, you
will enjoy the countryside and farmland whose beauty changes
from season to season.
Along the Parkway, there are many places to stop and visit.
These places include Grandfather Mountain, Linville Gorge
and Caverns, Devilís Courthouse, Moses Cone Park, Crabtree
Meadows, and Mount Pisgah. The Parkway is maintained by the
National Park Service; you can get detailed maps and guides
at any of the Parkways visitorís centers.
Make sure to stop for a day or two in Asheville,
NC while exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway.
