Blue Ridge Parkway

The Appalachian Trail crisscrosses the Blue Ridge Parkway for 100 miles in Virginia. Farther south, it winds through the Great Smoky Mountains. The trail usually follows the crest of the Appalachian chain, occasionally descending into scenic valleys. The trail's highest point, 6,643 feet, is at Clingmans Dome on the North Carolina-Tennessee border. Its lowest elevation, 124 feet, occurs at Bear Mountain Crossing in New York.
Stretching 2,050 miles from Mt. Katahdin in central Maine to Springer Mountain in northern Georgia, the Appalachian Trail is the longest marked footpath in the world. Begun in 1922, the trail traverses 14 states, including 541 miles in Virginia and more than 200 miles in North Carolina. Hikers who complete the trek visit eight national forests and five national park areas.
