Blue Ridge Parkway

The parkway follows the Appalachian Mountain chain and provides seemingly endless views of parallel ranges connected by cross ranges and scattered hills. From Shenandoah National Park the parkway follows the Blue Ridge, eastern rampart of the Appalachians, for 355 miles. Then, for the remaining 114 miles, it skirts the southern end of the massive Black Mountains, named for the dark green spruce and fir that cover them, weaves through the Craggies, the Pisgahs, the Balsams, and ends in the Great Smokies.



Pisgah National Forest

This 500,000 plus-acre forest features waterfalls, swimming holes, fishing & picnic areas. Part of the forest was originally a part of the Biltmore Estate, purchased in 1916. Access to the Forest if available from Asheville on the Blue Ridge Parkway, U.S. 25/70 & U.S. 280 West.
