This 469-mile ribbon of beauty continues to be the most visited unit of the National Park System. Connecting Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and North Carolina’s Great Smoky Mountain National Park, work began in September of 1935 and, incredibly, at one time, the Parkway was designed to span eastern Tennessee and not western North Carolina.  Be with us as we detail the story of one of North Carolina’s priceless gems.
