Shenandoah National Park
Shenandoah National Park lies astride a beautiful section of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, just 75 miles west of our nation’s capital. The scenic roadway Skyline Drive takes you through the 105 mile long park, providing more than 75 overlooks with spectacular vistas.
Five hundred miles of trails, consisting of 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail, lead visitors to waterfalls, panoramic views, protected wilderness and preserved human history in the Shenandoah valley. Many animals, including deer, black bears, and wild turkeys flourish among the rich growth of oak-hickory forest.
