Rockfish Gap marks the Northern beginning of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Southern end of the Skyline Drive.
It has seen a lot of activity over the course of history (check out the photo of the sign that talks about cites stories about the Native Americans and Thomas Jefferson). Now, it is ridden with a grown-over collection of abandoned signs and buildings. They are totally intriguing. If you start to get creeped out, just visit the lively popcorn truck that has set up shop amidst the graffiti'd ruins. If you are looking for the Visitors Center, the inn at Afton, or Swannanoa, look for the discreet signs leading you up the hill.
