  • This is the famous viaduct that is in many movies and pictures across the US. It is such a beautiful piece of art that you can actually drive on! The viaduct is held up in places by stone and hangs ou...  more »
  • One of the most photographed stretches of road in America. Just spectacular. Don’t blink or you’ll miss it, because it doesn’t take long. But if you’re on this part of the Parkway, you have to drive o...  more »
  • Amazingly beautiful long range views can be viewed from the Linn Cove Viaduct, especially on a clear day. Even if the fall colors have passed at the higher elevations, you will still have a view of th...  more »

  • Linn Cove Viaduct was the last section of the parkway to be constructed and the most difficult. Typical road construction would have significantly damaged Grandfather Mountain, so the solution was a viaduct. The Linn Cove Viaduct Visitor Center is located at mile post 304.4 on the parkway, just a mile north of US-221 near Grandfather Mountain. There are restrooms, lots of information and a small gift shop here. A short paved trail leads from the north end of the parking lot to underneath one section of the viaduct. You really get a feel for what an engineering marvel the viaduct is when you walk under it and see the massive cliffs and steep terrain that the road was built on. The 13-mile Tanawha Trail runs through here so a great spot to set off on a longer hike.
  • Coming from the south, we stopped at the Parking Area BEFORE the Linn Cove Visitor Center. We did not realize that it is way PAST THE VISITOR Center and therefore missed it. I gave it 5 stars because of the pictures I have seen
  • Autumns Blue Ridge RT took us through Linn Cove Viaduct bridges. We approached South at mid afternoon, I was hoping for a parking pull out to view the curvy bridges; the few pull outs were full. Colors spectacular. In order to get a good photo and get a parking spot you have to double back and retry to park. This is the BR parkway and the speed limit is about 30 mph.
  • Great spot along the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are a few locations where you can get nice pictures of the curve. One is more east on the parkway, another one requires a little bit of hiking on a trail. You can park at te visitor center and start from there. Fall is a great season to visit to get the foliage. You can check the national park service website to check the colors of the leaves to determine the best time to visit.
  • Great place with amazing panoramic view! I think the best time to visit is late October.
