About Blue Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Parkway is literally the "Backbone" of a great scenic mountain region embracing the Southern (and highest) portion of the Appalachian mountain range winding its way 469 miles through mountain meadows and past seemingly endless vistas. Opening up vast mountain areas all around Asheville NC for the benefit and enjoyment of all. 

The Parkway forms a broad avenue of approach, and at the same time a high balcony from which to view the natural wonders of this mountain region. This great 469 mile scenic parkway follows closely the highest ridges between the Shenandoah and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, attaining altitudes of more than 6,000 feet and averaging between 3,000 and 4,000 feet. it is designed especially for leisurely enjoyment of the scenic wonders along the way - a high road of adventure intended for gypsy-like travel on the ride -awhile, stop-awhile basis. The numerous overlooks provide parking areas from which to enjoy some of America's finest scenic views. 

The Parkway meanders for 469 miles and ends near the Shenandoah National Park to the north and south to the Great Smokey Mountains National Park.
