Sit calmly in your air conditioned car, at a 35-40 MPH pace, mellow music on low and just enjoy the view. Lots to learn so make sure and stop at the designated areas.

We drove only a little of the northern end of the Parkway but enjoyed it thoroughly. It is so peaceful and relaxing to drive on the Trace. Thank you to the National Park Service for maintaining this beautiful treasure.
