The National Park Service maintains web sites for all of this nation’s great national parks, and our local park, Shenandoah, is no exception. The Shenandoah National Park Web Page provides detailed information about Shenandoah, located in Virginia, approximately one hour west of Washington, D.C. Shenandoah spans a large section of the Appalachian Mountains in Virginia, and centers along Skyline Drive, a winding road that makes its way through the length of the park.
Shenandoah offers visitors numerous opportunities to take advantage of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Hikers will delight in hundreds of miles of maintained hiking trails, and campers will enjoy staying at the Big Meadows, Lewis Mountain, and Loft Mountain campgrounds. (As DCSki reported last July, Shenandoah plans on re-opening the Mathews Arm campground by next spring.)
Shenandoah is a beautiful place to visit year-round. Shenandoah is most popular in the fall when the trees change colors. With the arrival of autumn’s colors, Skyline Drive becomes one of the most scenic roads in the country.
You can visit the Shenandoah Web Page for more details about the park. Shenandoah also places press releases on this page, so you can stay up to date on the latest happenings. DCSki will also let you know about the latest events at Shenandoah.
