Traveling through Shenandoah National Park and along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains, offers sensational views of gently rolling hills to the east and the rich agricultural valley to the west. With two peaks over 4,000 feet, waterfalls, lush stream hollows, and a wide range of recreation opportunities, discover a world rugged, yet serene.
The Shenandoah National Park came into being in 1926. Years of deforestation making way for hunting, cropland, and pastures for grazing sheep and cattle damaged the region. Returning the land to its natural state was a priority and today 95 percent of the region is reforested. Skyline Drive began construction in 1931, a project approved by Herbert Hoover in hopes of stimulating the economy, and completed 8 years later. The ruins of cabins and farm buildings are testament to the history of the people that lived here and over 340 structures in the park are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
