If you travel the entire 469-mile length of the Blue Ridge Parkway, you’re entitled to a special award!

FRIENDS, in partnership with the National Park Service (NPS) Blue Ridge Parkway, would like to celebrate your journey with:

  • a custom certificate
  • Blue Ridge Parkway car emblem
  • a free, one-year membership with FRIENDS of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Tell us your story and share your photos! We love to hear about your Parkway experience.

Terms and Conditions? Simple.

To be eligible, you must have traveled the entire length of the Blue Ridge Parkway since September 11, 1987 (the official completion date). Your journey may be by any legal means possible – car, motorcycle, bicycle, on foot… as long as you’re on the Parkway. Flying over it doesn’t count.

You don’t have to complete the length in one trip, as long as you travel the entire Parkway at some point since it’s official completion date… you’re eligible!

Please complete our 469 Award application and mail it to the FRIENDS headquarters attn: 469 Award. If you have the technology and like to save a stamp, help FRIENDS be green! Scan the completed application and e-mail it to us at staff@friendsbrp.org.
