If you are looking for the best guide to Shenandoah National Park, look no further.  It is a richly illustrated guide to Shenandoah National Park. Includes many finely detailed maps and complete mile-by-mile description of Skyline Drive.

For many visitors, the two-lane blacktop Skyline Drive is Shenandoah National Park. The road stays to the narrow rooftop of the park, the Mile 0 at Front Royal, Virginia, to Mile 105 at Rockfish Gap. Along the way, nearly 70 overlooks permit expansive observations east to the Piedmont and west to the Shenandoah Valley and Massanutten. Years ago, landscape architect Harvey Benson stated, “It is for these far-reaching views from the Skyline Drive that the park is most widely known for ….Skyline Drive has changed little today. Simple concrete mile markers, numbered north to south, point the way. Top speed is 35 miles an hour. At Skyland the road achieves its highest elevation- 3,680 feet above sea level. Overlooks, picnic areas, campgrounds, and trails, including the Appalachian Trail, give visitors plenty of opportunity to stop and savor the grand views of the mountains, valleys, forests, and streams, and all the small things in between. white-tailed deer, wild turkey, and groundhogs frequent the road edges, and drivers are advised to watch for them. It’s always a pleasure to observe these creatures in their native home.
