I love the Blue Ridge Parkway! My car has the specialty license plate which donates $20 to the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation. When driving through Asheville, I take the parkway whenever I can for the year-round beauty. I use the Parkway for riding my bike (no stoplights!) and for the Mountains-to-Sea trail that parallels the Parkway. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs for 469 miles, so many of these hikes are a ways apart.
