Skyline Drive

The National Scenic Byway that rides along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains and through the heart of Shenandoah National Park!

Skyline Drive draws over 1.2 million visitors every year, and is notorious for bursting into a landscape of rainbow-colored foliage every autumn.

There are four entrances to Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park, located at:

  • Front Royal, accessible via I-66 and U.S. 340
  • Thornton Gap, accessible via U.S. 211
  • Swift Run Gap, accessible via U.S. 33
  • Rockfish Gap, accessible via I-64 and U.S. 250

Along the 105-mile stretch, which climbs to 3,680 feet above sea level, you'll have the opportunity to pull off the road at 69 scenic overlooks and take part in an array of recreational activities - from hiking, horseback riding, and rock climbing to culinary events and wine tasting!

Complete your Shenandoah experience with a stay in the park at Skyland, Big Meadows Lodge, or Lewis Mountain Cabins!
