The Blue Ridge Parkway and COVID-19

If you are visiting the Parkway, you can help the National Park Service by:

  • Avoiding high traffic locations, such as Graveyard Fields, Craggy Gardens, Sharp Top, and Humpack Rocks, and opting for beautiful spots where it is easier to practice social distancing
  • Stay at least 6 feet away from other hikers, visitors, and rangers 
  • Practice Leave No Trace principles, including packing in and packing out all garbage, staying on designated trails, and being considerate of other visitors.

Trails & Views Forever

We are continuing to gain ground toward meeting a $300,000 challenge grant for the Trails & Views Forever Fund, established to rehab the outdoor recreation spaces you love.

Please give today to repair and rehab the trails, campgrounds, picnic areas, and overlooks along the Blue Ridge Parkway!
