“Beautiful Scenic Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Spectacular...We took a leisurely drive and started at Front Royal the northern most entrance of skyline drive in Virginia..The views are breathtaking...there is nothing more exciting than driving around a curve and viewing the Shenandoah Valley..They have many scenic overlooks and we took advantage of most of them. .They also have hiking trails although we did not take advantage of the trails....we saw some deer and spring was starting to bud all around us....If you are in the area I would definitely take this scenic and enjoyable ride...

Comes see Virginia landscape and to die for views! Take the slow road and enjoy the vistas. Great for picnicking and hiking.

“Beautiful Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We took a detour while traveling from Chippokes Plantation to Luray Caverns, and decided to take the less direct route to Luray by driving the skyline drive. The drive was beautiful and really is a don't miss. But make sure your breaks are in good working order! The hills are VERY steep! I have a full review of our drive with pictures over on my blog if you are interested:

“Beautiful! Especially in the Winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

A delightful ride through the Shenendoah Valley on the Skyline Drive. Near the top, there were snow flurries, which enhanced the experience. I stopped at almost every overlook and admired the view, even though it was a bit cloudy. What a lovely drive!
