With 75 overlooks peering out into the Shenandoah Valley to the east and the Piedmont to the west, Skyline Drive attracts over two million visitors annually. Most popular in the fall due to the changing leaves, this National Scenic Byway has a speed limit of 35mph on account of the traffic, curves, and wildlife. White-tailed deer, black bears, and wild turkey are frequently sighted on the road. Skyline Drive is 105 miles long and runs north to south as the only public road through Shenandoah National Park. The park, in which roadsides are intentionally left unmowed so wildflowers can grow year-round, is known to have one of the densest black bear populations in the United States.
