Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Milepost 115, Explore Park features hundreds of acres of rolling hills, pristine woodlands, hiking trails, river frontage, historical buildings and a visitor information center. We're in the process of implementing an Adventure Plan to bring exciting new outdoor recreation amenities to the park. Scroll down for updates about what's going on right now!
PLEASE NOTE: Explore Park is undergoing construction in 2018-2019 as we implement our Adventure Plan and lay the foundation for several new park amenities. These changes will affect our road system and infrastructure, and could possibly impact activities and events at the facility. We do not plan on closing the park during these improvements and will continue to serve the community with our scheduled lineup of activities and events. Questions? Call the visitor center at (540) 427-1800 or send us an email.
