Skyline Drive Trip - Big Pictures

I was finally able to travel Skyline Dr. this labor day weekend. My wife, a friend and I drove almost the entire length of the Shennandoah National park. I'd highly recommend this drive for any motoring enthusiast; especially this fall.





We hiked the Bear Fence Trail, around mile marker 56. Its a 1.9 mile round trip, with alot of simple rocky outcrops. The pictures below are taken from a 360 view from atop the rocky peak of this hill.

Definitely agree. Skyline is a great drive, in any season, really, but mostly in the fall. The road gets busy and slow though as the foliage comes out.

For those who haven't been, it's literally a road built on the top of a mountain ridge with plenty of scenic overlooks and pull-offs to stop and take pictures. I think you're around 3000 ft in elevation at the higher spots. The surrounding valley is less than 1000 ft so you can see for many miles.

I was there last year and did some camping at Matthew's Arm camground.

Very pretty, nice pictures! I can only imagine how spectacular the hills are as the leaves turn.

Awesome pictures. My wife and I are planning on heading there at the end of September and then continuing on to do the Tail of the Dragon. Looking forward to the scenery and driving the roadster on the twisties.
