Warren County is located in the Shenandoah Valley region of Virginia. The Skyline Drive - the scenic route through the Shenandoah National Park - begins in Warren County.
The Shenandoah National Park offers plenty of hiking trails -- part of the Appalachian Trail goes through here, too.
The majority of the 176,000 acres that comprise the County area is filled with loblolly pines, dogwood, sweet gums and maple trees.
Warren County has long attracted tourists and seasonal residents, who have come to the area because of its climate, accessibility to major cities, and scenic beauty.
Major tourist attractions include the Shenandoah National Park, the Skyline Drive, the Shenandoah River and the Skyline Caverns. The beauty of nature is further exhibited along the banks of the lazily flowing Ogeechee River that forms the western boundary of Warren County. Sports enthusiasts can find a place to spend their favorite pastimes and golfers will delight in the challenging fairways of the newly-developed 18-hole Boulders Golf Course.

SKYLINE DRIVE... The Skyline Drive runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park and is the only public road through the park. You can enter Shenandoah at four places: Front Royal near Rt. 66 and 340, Thornton Gap at Rt. 211, Swift Run Gap at Rt. 33, and Rockfish Gap at Rt. 64 and Rt. 250 (also the northern entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway). It takes about three hours to travel the entire length of the park on a clear day.
As you travel along Skyline Drive you will notice mileposts on the west side (right side if you are traveling south) of the road. These posts help you find your way through the park and help you locate areas of interest. The mileposts begin with 0.0 at Front Royal and continue to 105 at the southern end of the park.
The speed limit is 35 mph, so you can roll down your windows, feel the breeze and experience every curve and turn of this beautiful drive. There are 75 overlooks that offer stunning views of the Shenandoah Valley to the west or the rolling Piedmont to the east. The park purposely leaves the roadsides unmowed so wildflowers put on a show all year long.
