Highpoint rank by height: 16th. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a spectacular scenic road that winds through beautiful hills and forests. Due to the lack of passing areas and the frequent curves on this highway, plan on averaging only about 30 mph (48 km per hour). The Blue Ridge Parkway is closed during foggy or other inclement weather. Mount Mitchell is the highest point east of the Mississippi River.
