Skyline Drive Parkway Mileposts

What is a Milepost Marker?

A milepost is a stone marker located along the side of the Skyline Drive Parkway indicating the number of miles traveled and location. The zero milepost marker is at Rockfish Gap immediately south of Shenandoah National Park. Each mile is numbered progressively southward on the Parkway to its southernmost entrance at Rockfish Gap. These mileposts also help travelers to discover and experience the Skyline drive parkway’s overlooks and gaps, popular hiking trails, and points of interest. Many magazines will highlight certain towns, attractions, festivals and more by using these milepost markers.
