Welcome to Shenandoah National Park

Shenandoah National Park

Following the Blue Ridge Mountains for 100 miles (161km) through west Virginia, the Shenandoah National Park is a wilderness area where deer and black bears roam among about 100 species of trees on the forested slopes. Hiking trails snake through the area from the azalea-trimmed Skyline Drive, the 105-mile (169km) long road that runs through the park from the Piedmont Plateau, providing wonderful vistas of the Shenandoah Valley from its overlooks. Services and visitor centres are available on the drive, but are closed during winter. Wildflower weekend is celebrated in May, and ranger-led tours and programs are offered between April and October.
