“Breath taking drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

No matter what season it is you will not be disappointed. This is a Breath Taking drive. Very well worth every widing road. Just make sure in the winter you check for road closures.

“Amazing mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Wow, that's the only thing you need to know about the Blue Ridge Parkway. In Summer, Fall or Winter, it is breath taking. The views of all the ridges are extensive, it goes on for ever and ever. We have now driven the length of the whole Parkway. It is definitely worth doing.

Fabulous, unfortunately we went there 2-3weeks too late, all the leaves were down but still enjoyed the view and the trails.

“Best Road Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

I live near the BRP and head up frequently. There are trails every few miles, and gorgeous views from almost every point. if you haven't been this needs to be on your list.
