Skyline Drive - Entry


Major entry points to Skyline Drive are as follows:

  • Front Royal, Virginia (U.S. Highway 340), the northern terminus
  • Thornton Gap (U.S. Highway 211)
  • Swift Run Gap (U.S. Highway 33)
  • Rockfish Gap (Interstate 64, U.S. Highway 250), the southern terminus.
  • Waynesboro, exit 99 on I-64 and Route 250.

Fees are collected at the Skyline Drive's access points. The fee varies based on the season. Passes, which are valid for unlimited entries within a seven-day period, are issued. Since user fees are charged at entry points along the Skyline Drive, the Drive is sometimes mistaken for a toll road. The fee, however, is not a toll charged to drive on the road, but rather an entry fee for the park itself. A $15.00 pass is valid for up to seven days and $30.00 for a year-long pass.

Famous quotes containing the word entry:

    All mothers need instruction, nurturing, and an understanding mentor after the birth of a baby, but in this age of fast foods, fast tracks, and fast lanes, it doesn’t always happen. While we live in a society that provides recognition for just about every life event—from baptisms to bar mitzvahs, from wedding vows to funeral rites—the entry into parenting seems to be a solo flight, with nothing and no one to mark formally the new mom’s entry into motherhood.
    Sally Placksin (20th century)

    When women can support themselves, have entry to all the trades and professions, with a house of their own over their heads and a bank account, they will own their bodies and be dictators in the social realm.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)
