Stretching almost 500 miles through North Carolina and Virginia, the Blue Ridge Parkway provides visitors with a series of panoramic views, protects significant mountain landscapes, and is a “museum of the managed American countryside.”
The protection of the Parkway and surrounding region is an immense task, with much at stake. The Parkway of tomorrow will be defined by the extent to which people today are willing to speak out on behalf of the Parkway and to invest in its future.
The ‘100 Ways’ website offers visitors the opportunity to discover 100 opportunities to connect to the Blue Ridge Parkway through partner organizations. Whether it’s rolling up your sleeves to help with trail maintenance or celebrating Appalachia’s musical heritage with a performance at the Blue Ridge Music Center, this comprehensive list enables all to experience, enjoy, and give back to the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The ‘100 Ways’ site is part of a larger effort to celebrate the centennial of the National Park Service by connecting and creating the next generation of park visitors, supporters, and advocates.
