The app includes 469 miles of scenic places, historic sites, trails, overlooks, interpretive exhibits, visitor centers, lodging, services, and essential information for visiting the Blue Ridge Parkway area.

Blue Ridge Parkway Travel Planner
is FREE to download for AndroidTM and iPhone® (optional offline map download does incur a small fee, however. See below for details).

The Parkway App for All Your Trip Planning Needs

Access detailed information for the Parkway’s four major regions: Ridge, Plateau, Highlands and Pisgah, as well as information for the Shenandoah National Park region (near the Parkway’s northern end) and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park region (near the Parkway’s southern end).

Explore by region, activity or proximity to your location. Download the app to access content during your trip to visit the Blue Ridge Parkway area, or use it to plan your vacation before you leave home.

Text information on the mobile app is accessible with or without a cell signal. Map functionality is included for all users with a cell signal, and the downloading of offline maps is available for a small one-time fee. The $1.99 fee offsets the Blue Ridge Parkway Association’s cost to utilize offline maps from Mapbox. This allows our non-profit organization to continue providing the use of offline maps on this mobile application. The offline maps may help you to navigate and locate points of interest when cellular service is lacking or spotty in some areas along the Parkway.
