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, and opting to visit 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.
