Skipping across the Appalachian mountain tops, the Blue Ridge Parkway is America's longest and most popular scenic byway. The parkway stretches 469 miles, from Waynesboro, Virginia, to the Cherokee Indian Reservation in North Carolina. This All- American Road began as a Civilian Conservation Corps project and turned into a national park treasure, featuring miles of majestic mountain views and a long list of historic sites. Mountain road pullouts and overlooks offer today's travelers some of the same views that early pioneers enjoyed over 200 years ago.
