Blue Ridge Parkway: Blowing Rock to Asheville Professional Review and Guide

"A 90-mile paved segment of the Blue Ridge Parkway, the famous scenic drive that connects Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks. The Blue Ridge Parkway is one of the most scenic routes in the eastern United States. It follows a 469-mile route along the crest of the Blue Ridge and other mountain ranges between Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina. The road was designed as a recreational route and is remarkably free of commercial establishments, subdivisions, and truck traffic. Its roots lie in the Depression of the 1930s. Although visitors can travel this scenic section of the parkway in a day, its many attractions can fill two or three days.

Special attractions: Blue Ridge Parkway, Blowing Rock, Moses H. Cone Memorial Park, Julian Price Memorial Park, Linn Cove Viaduct, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls, Museum of North Carolina Minerals, Crabtree Meadows and Falls, Mount Mitchell State Park, Craggy Gardens, Folk Art Center, hiking, views, fall colors, fishing, and rockhounding. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
