Blue Ridge ParkwayStretching 469 glorious miles, the Blue Ridge Parkway goes from Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina. The scenery is spectacular and there are a plethora of recreational opportunities along the way. You can enjoy everything from camping and hiking to biking to fishing. One of the most popular times of year to make the journey is in the fall when the leaves begin to change. It's a sight you won't soon forget.
There's no cost to travel the Blue Ridge Parkway. For camping, there's a $16 charge per site. The fee is reduced for visitors with an Interagency Senior or Access Pass (or former Golden Age or Golden Access Passports).
