Starting from Washington DC, we plan to south-west first (terminus will be Ashville, NC - we plan to go to Biltmore Estate too), continuing through Great Smoky NP, Nashville TN and then westwards all the way out to California via I-40 mostly.
Much as we like, we definitely do not have the time to do the entirety of BRP. I try reading the blueridgeparkway.org website but I think I have information overload!
So can anyone who is familiar with BRP please let me know which section is best and I should choose to do? Let's assume I can only allocate a few hours or up to 1 day of driving/sightseeing/stopping/eating for BRP. So I definitely dont want to spend say 8 hours driving non-stop on BRP, hence I have to be selective.
I know BRP runs almost parallel to I-81 and I can enter onto BRP at certain points, but first i need to know at which part to cut out and enter BRP from the Interstate!
p/s: is the BRP known by other route numbers on a map? because i cannot really tell which route is BRP if i look at a Rand McNally road atlas, for example.
Many thanks ahead
