Established in 1935, Shenandoah National Park encompasses part of the Blue Ridge Mountains in north/Central Virginia. The park is long and narrow, with the broad Shenandoah River and Valley on the west side, and the rolling hills of the Virginia Piedmont on the east. It features over 500 miles of trails, including 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Some trails lead to spectacular waterfalls or vistas while others travel deep into Shenandoah’s wilderness.
