Just north of the Parkway, Shenandoah National Park runs across the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, between the Shenandoah River and Valley on the west and the rolling hills of the Virginia Piedmont on the east. Its most prominent feature is Skyline Drive, a 105-mile scenic byway that runs the entire length of the park along the ridge of the mountains. 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail run through this park, in addition to more than 500 miles of other hiking trails. Backcountry camping sites are scattered throughout the park’s 200,000 acres. The northernmost part of the park is only 75 miles from Washington, D.C.
