description

Summary

Significance: Over seventy miles long and varying in width from less than one mile to just over 13 miles, Shenandoah National Park straddles the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Here the ancient and narrow front range of the Appalachian Mountain, shrouded in a perpetual blue haze of humidity, rises abruptly from the eastern Piedmont plateau before descending sharply into the Shenandoah Valley on the west. Winding along the ridge crest, Skyline Drive provides physical and scenic access along the park's entire length, offering views over the western valley and eastern plateau some 2,500 to 3,500 feet below.
Survey number: HAER VA-119
