Village of Saunook Overlook, Milepost 440

Overlooks

Over two hundred times along the length of the Blue Ridge Parkway, drivers will pass pull-offs that look onto wide, breathtaking vistas, luring them to stop their cars and take in the views. Many overlooks have picnic tables, trails, or other amenities or opportunities, but what makes the Blue Ridge Parkway’s overlooks consistently irresistable are the long, wide, and open views across the Blue Ridge Mountain ranges.

Below is a list of Blue Ridge Parkway overlooks by milepost, starting at the northern end of the Parkway in Virginia and ending at the southern end in Cherokee, North Carolina. Click on individual overlooks to view an interactive 360-degree view and to learn the overlook’s elevation, geography, and history.
