Rocky Mountain of the East - not Rocky Top yet!

home along the Blue Ridge Parkway

Movie Clips - Playback Requirements - Problems?

(MP4 - 4.78 MB)

great site at end of Skyline Driv


Once I got to the top of the mountains, the drive wasn't so bad.

Skyline Drive (SD) has a speed limit of 35 mph

Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP) has a speed limit of 45 mph

SD has while lines along edge of road on either side

BRP has only center lines on purpose to have road blend into nature

SD has the Shenandoah NP on either side of the road

BRP has wilderness with houses and farms inbetween

SD has limited access so NPS can collect fees

BRP is free to drive, so there are a lot more roads cutting across the mountains
