Plan Your Visit to Shenandoah

Choose your own adventure!

Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and only 75 miles from our nation’s capital, Shenandoah National Park offers more than 75 overlooks and vistas along its iconic, 105-mile Skyline Drive. With more than 500 miles of hiking trails, Shenandoah also houses 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail. There are so many ways to explore Shenandoah, and we hope this page will help you plan your visit!

While visiting the park, we at the Trust ask that you recreate responsibly. That means planning your visit carefully based on seasonal park closures and public safety concerns.
