5 Best Hotels near Shenandoah National Park

Almost 40% of the park has been designated as wilderness areas, which means that it is closed to any sort of development: that includes hiking trails, driving trails, and campsites. The highest peak in the park is Hawksbill Mountain, which reaches a height of 4,051 feet above sea level.

The park was established in 1935, and encompasses 199,100 acres. Roughly, 1,200,000 tourists visit the park per year. The 105-mile scenic driving trail, Skyline Drive, is a prominent and popular feature of the park, especially in the fall when the leaves are changing color.

Many tourists visit the park for a variety of reasons, from the casual visitor who takes a drive along Skyline Drive, to the hikers and backpackers who delve into the forest and peaks of the park, away from the rest of humanity for a restorative escape into nature. Birdwatching is popular in the park, as it is a stopover for many birds during the spring and fall migrations.

Attractions

Surrounded by the majestic mountains of Virginia, the beautiful Shenandoah Valley offers a wide variety of outdoor and educational activities. The Shenandoah National Park contains spectacular waterfalls fed by the many mountain streams that traverse the park. Besides providing great natural photography opportunities, the park's mountain streams offer visitors the ideal setting for fishing and swimming. Those who wish to fish the streams should check state and local regulations regarding harvest locations, fish size, and the licensing needed to participate in this activity at Shenandoah National Park, Virginia.

A unique activity offered to the park's more daring visitors is hang gliding. Visitors may take advantage of the mountains and high altitude of the Shenandoah National Park to launch hang gliders in designated areas. The sport is not for everyone. Only gliders who have reached a documented experience level and have obtained a special permit are allowed to hang glide in the park.

Families visiting the Shenandoah National Park may choose to view the wonders of nature by bike and horseback. Cyclists are allowed to share the paved roads with other vehicles in order to enjoy this great way of exploring the area. Horses may be rented and taken on trail tours guided by staff members of local stables. The stables even have ponies available for small children to ride, which makes this activity truly fun for the entire family.

The area surrounding Shenandoah National Park is also rich in natural beauty as well as cultural and educational activities. The Natural Bridge, which is over twenty stories in height and composed of limestone rock, has formed naturally over centuries. Nearby underground caverns provide additional hidden places to explore. A visit to the Monacan Native American Village located on the Natural Bridge property lets guests peer into the past society of the early Americans who lived in the area. Guides dressed in the native attire take visitors on a tour of the village while presenting the daily activities of the Native Americans of that day.

Many of the most notable Civil War battles were fought in Virginia so it is only natural that the area has become home to some premier Civil War historic sites and museums. The Virginia Museum of the Civil War, which is located within the New Market Battlefield State Park, is one such museum. The museum exhibits cover a wide range of Civil War artifacts, but the museum's primary focus is on the Civil War battles fought in Virginia. Those who visit during the spring may be able to catch a showing of the award winning, annual New Market Battle Re-enactment.

Getting to the Park

Driving to Shenandoah National Park can be challenging because of the park's isolated location and rough terrain within the Blue Ridge Mountains in the state of Virginia. The national park stretches for more than 100 miles, and driving in your own vehicle is the only way of navigating the area because public transportation is out of the question. The biggest challenge of driving to Shenandoah National Park is that a GPS navigation system may not necessarily take drivers to roadways that lead to the park's entrances. What's more frustrating is that most of the parts of the national park don't have a physical address so you must input specific coordinates into your GPS system. The National Park Service emphasizes these warnings and driving directions.

The northern part of Shenandoah National Park is roughly located near the small town of Front Royal, Virginia. Front Royal can be reached by taking Interstate 66, which is an 80 mile highway that connects to Washington D.C. and Arlington, Virginia.

The Thornton Gap Entrance to Shenandoah National Park is accessible through U.S. Route 211 near the small community of Luray, Va. The Swift Run Gap entrance can be reached by taking U.S. Route 33 through Stanardsville, Virginia. Located along U.S. Route 250, the Rockfish Gap provides entrance to the southern part of Shenandoah National Park.

Interstate 81 runs several miles west of Shenandoah National Park. This 855 mile long highway goes through New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Tennessee. No matter where you are driving from, you must remember that Shenandoah National Park is only accessible through the four major entrances. Drivers can orient themselves by heading towards Harrisonbourg, Virginia, the largest city near Shenandoah National Park.
