 Blue Ridge Mountain Range Facts

The Blue Ridge are a range of the Appalachian mountain chain in the United States that extends from southwest of Carlisle Pennsylvania through parts of Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina to Mt. Oglethorpe Georgia. Included in the Blue Ridge mountain range are the Black, the Great Smoky and the Unaka mountains. Mt. Mitchell is the tallest Mountain peak east of Mississippi, 6684 ft. Virginia's highest mountain peak is Mt. Rogers at 5,729 ft. The Skyline drive in Virginia connects to the Blue Ridge at Rockfish Gap, VA via the Blue Ridge Parkway that continues the scenic drive through Asheville and ends at Cherokee at the Great Smoky National Park. Within the Blue Ridge you will find the following national forests: Nantahala, Pisgah, Cherokee, Jefferson and George Washington. There are more than 700 varieties of trees and plants within the Blue Ridge.

The Blue Ridge Parkway was established in 1936. and is about 469 miles. It was apart of the new deal by Roosevelt to produce more jobs. Since the speed limit is 45, it is a long drive. At some places, you may want to drive slower as the road is very winding. Following along mountain crests, the parkway links the Shenandoah National Park with the Great Smoky National Park. These are federal lands, wilderness areas and are protected by law. You cant pick flowers or dig up plants, but you can hike the many mountain trails. Graveyard fields is a wilderness area that is south of Asheville North Carolina near Mt. Pisgah. Linville gorge is another wilderness area north of Asheville near Mt. Mitchell.
