Rockfish Gap to James River Visitor Center Professional Review and Guide

"In the 115 miles from Rockfish Gap to Roanoke, the Blue Ridge narrows to a single ridgetop, which the Parkway traverses, alternating from side to side. This 64-mile stretch leading to the James River Visitor Center begins with some stunning mountain overlooks.

From Humpback Rocks Visitor Center, the Parkway winds upward to the rocky vantage point of Raven’s Roost. If you are traveling north, this is one of your first views of the Shenandoah Valley. The rock in this area, Catoctin greenstone, has a green tint and is part of the lava flows along Skyline Drive. When we last stood on these rocks, the view was of the sun breaking through swift-moving clouds and mist slinking along the flint-gray ridges."
