Shenandoah National Park extends along the Blue Ridge Mountains in the U.S. state of Virginia. The Skyline Drive runs its length, and a vast network of trails includes a section of the long-distance Appalachian Trail. Mostly forested, the park features wetlands, waterfalls and rocky peaks like Hawksbill and Old Rag mountains. Shenandoah is home to many bird species, plus deer, squirrels and the elusive black bear. The park's southernmost access point is just three miles from Waynesboro.
From spring to fall, you can enhance your trip along the Skyline with a stay at Big Meadows Lodge which has restaurants, cabins as well as more traditional rooms, and activites like live music and classes such as a basic outdoor survival skills class.
Whether you are looking for a scenic way to get from point A to point B, want to spend the day hiking and stopping at overlooks, or want to plan a serious vacation, Skyline Drive is a great way to reconnect with the outdoors.
