Extending along the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Shenandoah National Park offers visitors tons of outdoor exploring. The Park is filled with cascading waterfalls, spectacular vistas, fields of wildflowers, and quiet wooded hollows. Almost 40% of the land area has been designated as wilderness and is protected as part of the National Wilderness Preservation System! Take a drive along Skyline Drive — the main road through the park, which twists and turns along the ridge-line of the mountains. Stunning views can be enjoyed along the Drive – especially during the fall months when the colorful foliage is peaking. Whether you’re looking for a day hike or an extending camping trip with advanced hiking and climbing opportunities, Shenandoah National Park has an option for everyone.
