North Entrance Station - Skyline Drive in Shenandoah

The 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. You can enter Shenandoah at four places: Front Royal near Rt. 66 and 340, Thornton Gap at Rt. 211, Swift Run Gap at Rt. 33, and Rockfish Gap at Rt. 64 and the northern entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. It takes about three hours to travel the entire length of the park on a clear day.The scenic drive is particularly popular in the fall when the leaves are changing colors. Annually, over two million people visit the Skyline Drive, which has been designated a National Scenic By way.

All my memories, gathered 'round her Miners' Lady, stranger to blue water Dark and dusty, painted on the sky Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye John Denver Country Roads
