Guide to the Blue Ridge Parkway
by Victoria Logue, Frank Logue & Nicole Blouin

A national treasure that was designed to be enjoyed from the seat of a car, the Blue Ridge Parkway reveals the beauty and splendor of the Blue Ridge Mountains. If you are planning a visit or are already on your way, you'll want a copy of the Guide to the Blue Ridge Parkway to discover all that the Parkway has to offer. This milepost guide highlights important attractions and destinations on the 469-mile Parkway, including cultural parks, remnants of historical Appalachia, as well as trailheads and campgrounds. Sidebars throughout the guidebook cover diverse subjects, such as the preservation of view sheds and the habits of animals that frequent the Parkway. And wildflower enthusiasts will benefit from the bloom calendar, which notes peak bloom times and general locations of the flowers.

The September 2000 issue of Money Magazine featured an article on the Blue Ridge Parkway. In suggesting guidebooks, they write,

"There are over a dozen Blue Ridge Parkway travel guidebooks in print,
and I consulted many of them before and during my trip.
By far the most useful were Victoria Logue, Frank Logue and Nicole Blouin's
Guide to the Blue Ridge Parkway
...a slender but informative volume
that gives mile-by-mile breakdowns on everything the parkway has to offer,
and Leonard M. Adkins' Walking the Blue Ridge."

We're glad the writer, Paul Lukas, found our work helpful and we are pleased to be mentioned along with our friend Leonard Adkins. For this project, we teamed up with our friend Nicole Blouin, who is the coauthor of Waterfalls of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
