Shenandoah National Park is a land bursting with cascading waterfalls, spectacular vistas, fields of wildflowers, and quiet wooded hollows. With over 200,000 acres of protected lands that are haven to deer, songbirds, and black bear, there's so much to explore...and your journey begins right here!
Amazing views while driving and hiking! We are closest to the Swift Run Entrance. There is a fee to enter. We recommend eating at Jacks Shop Kitchen in Ruckersville on your way in or out (Not open for dinner though)!
What more is there to say? There is a fee for the park. The skyline drive will take you to the park. About 10 miles away!
Hiking: Dark Hallow falls and Bear fence are two of my favorites Picnicking: Big Meadows has the most delicious raspberry ice cream Driving: Take the skyline drive and stop at the many lookouts along the way
Great for scenic drives and hiking! Stop at King's Gormet Popcorn food truck on Route 250 "at the top of the mountain". Best fresh kettle corn! Entrance fee or National Park Pass required.
Some trails are dog friendly (leashed) some don’t allow dogs. Beautiful national treasure in our backyard ❤️
“There is no fee if you head south. The Blue Ridge Parkway offers everything that the Skyline Drive does! Great views, hiking and popcorn!”
