Drive: 22 min
Shenandoah National Park is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia just west of Washington, D.C. The Park stretches 105 miles from its northern entrance at Front Royal to its southern entrance near Waynesboro. There are four entrance stations to Shenandoah National Park, but only one has a physical address. Skyline Drive is the main road that runs the span of Shenandoah’s 105 miles. The campgrounds, lodging options, waysides (gift shops and food), and the majority of hiking trailheads are either directly off of, or near, Skyline Drive. There are a select number trails leading from the boundary, such as Old Rag Mountain and Whiteoak Canyon.
Closest entrance to Staunton is Rockfish Gap, accessible via I-64 and Route 250. (Rockfish Gap is also the northern entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway.)
