Shenandoah National Park
Just 75 miles from the bustle of Washington, D.C., Shenandoah National Park is your escape to recreation and re-creation showcasing cascading waterfalls, spectacular vistas and quiet wooded hollows.
Skyline Drive runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park and is the only public road through the park offering beautiful overlooks and designed to give you spectacular views. Deer, black bear, wild turkey, and a host of other woodland animals call Shenandoah home and regularly cross Skyline Drive in their daily travels.
Shenandoah National Park contains over 70 mountain streams. Fishing opportunities are abundant but are also regulated in order to preserve and protect fish resources. On foot or by bike you will have a vast choice of hiking and biking trails adapted to your capabilities. Each trail’s difficulty is determined by a numerical rating. Old Rag is Shenandoah’s most popular and most dangerous hike.
