About the Blue Ridge Parkway
The Blue Ridge Parkway is a product of the Depression Era’s New Deal efforts to provide jobs to the unemployed of the Great Depression. Construction began in September 1935 at Cumberland Knob near the North Carolina and Virginia state line. The idea was to create a link between Shenandoah National Park to the edge of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Completed in 1983, the Parkway’s history has been highlighted by documentarian Ken Burns in the six-part “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.”

Named “America’s Favorite Drive“, the Parkway offers 469 miles of scenic roadway connecting the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina to Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. All along the way visitors will find stunning views, abundant hiking trails, picnic areas, campsites, interpretative exhibits and a diverse display of flora and fauna.
