The Skyline Drive is now OPEN from Front Royal (mile 0) to Dickey Ridge Visitor Center (mile 5) and from Thornton Gap Entrance Station (Route 211) to Swift Run Entrance Station (Route 33). The rest remains CLOSED due to winter weather conditions. Dickey Ridge Visitor Center will remain closed until tomorrow (11/21). Remember, in most circumstances the Park remains open even when the Drive is closed! Winter can be a great time to visit Shenandoah if you're properly prepared.

Fall is already making way for winter, but we wanted to say "Thank You" one more time to all the photographers who helped us capture Shenandoah's 2018 fall. Here are a few last photos that came in. Now, on to winter!! http://ow.ly/uaUo30mCt02

Winter weather in the higher elevations of the Park can be much different than weather in the surrounding areas. Due to this unpredictability of inclement weather, the status of the Skyline Drive can change frequently. For the current status, call (540) 999-3500 (select option 1, then option 1).
