The Blue Ridge Parkway

Blue Ridge Parkway

Blue Ridge Parkway

Blue Ridge Parkway was originally called the ‚Appalachian Scenic Highway‘. The project of the „Blue Ridge Parkway“ placed under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service, started in 1935 and took over fifty-two years to complete. It runs from the southern terminus of Shenandoah National Park’s Skyline Drive in Virginia  to U.S. Route 441 at Oconaluftee in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park near Cherokee, North Carolina.
The Parkway has no direct interchanges with interstate highways, offers overlook and picnic areas, and commercial vehicles are prohibited. The roadway is not maintained during the wintertime and several sections which pass over higher elevations are often impassable and therefore closed from late fall to early spring.
Because the lush Blue Ridge Mountain range puts on one of the longest-running leaf color displays in the country, October is the month to enjoying nature’s grand show and the numerous events and art festivals in the Blue Ridge Mountains and in our area.

  1. This photo is a very beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Parkway! Thank you so much for sharing it with everyone. The fall season is soon arriving and if you are taking any other photos along the Blue Ridge you might want to think about submitting them to the Blue Ridge Photo Essays. You can also view the current photos we have on our website. Thanks!
