The only problem with writing about Skyline Drive is that I will get crazy for it and head up this week. I better call ahead because they close for weather sometimes.

I have been back to the Parkway many, many times over the years...but have just now finally completed the last section I had not traveled. A true treasure. Hopefully I get the chance to experience it all in one wonderful drive sometime soon.

This beautiful parkway is a valuable piece of Americana. Although it runs from exit #99 on I-64 in Virginia to Cherokee, North Carolina, we got on in Cherokee and ran North. We hiked a few of the 300ish trails along the parkway and goofed off a little, That took two days. You could drive it all in one long day if you only wanted to drive it. There are many slowpokes so do not expect to break any speed records along the 469 miles of curvy road. I have been on many parts of the parkway over the years but always wanted to do it end to end. Now I want to take a camper and spend a month up there.

I went from Black Rock Gap to Pine Gap (AT shelter there), approximately 15 miles. It was hilly in a couple places, but nothing major. The trail went through vegetation tunnels and we saw bear scat, but didn't run into any bears. There were numerous places to stop and enjoy the view which really helped the enjoyment factor. About halfway, there is a stream with a good water supply. Since it crosses Skyline Drive several times, you never feel like you're too far away from civilization - but all the places were closed. Since we went off season, we only saw two other people on the trail. Nice!

I agree with Regina. I did the Shenandoah section of the AT 11 years ago. I would love to do the whole trail from Maine to Georgia in one hike but other demands do not allow that much continuous time out. Tis section is scenic, but my favorite is the middle section of the AT through Shenandoah.

After just coming off an overnight backpack it is nice to sit in the car and watch the scenery go by. Ant there are constant views on Skyline Drive. We stopped at Skyland for lunch and it was great.

Gorgeous drive at any time of the year! Also, there are plenty of trails to hit up right off of Skyline Drive, it's well worth the trip if you're visiting the D.C. area and want to get away to nature.
