Hi ! Im travelling from Washington DC, Id like to camp and hike in Shenandoah NP. There are some buses, trains, amtrak etc going to the skyline area, but I can't decide which city precisely I should choose as a start for my discovery of the area.
I know that I can easily find a camping there, but I admit that passing by one of the visitor centers would be great before I start hiking !
I haven't planned to rent a car, so I wonder if you know any entrance easy to reach by foot or by bus.
Which of the 4 entrances do you think is the closest to beautiful siteseeing and can be reached without driving ?
Thanks a lot for your anwers !
We are planning a trip in the fall as follows:
Fly to Washington DC staying for a couple of days then head off towards the Blue (Ridge) Parkway stopping of one or two nights en route towards Asheville heading towards Pigeon Forge to take in/stay near Dollywood then heading towards Nashville to stay there a couple of days then finally heading to Atlanta for a couple of days and then home.
Would anyone be able to give advice for a suggested route to take in part of the Blue Parkway and Shenandoah National Parks - and which towns to stop over in/any suggested accomodation?
Any tips/advice etc on where to stay/must do's would be most appreciated.
Phil and Den
