Celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Blue Ridge NC guides you through every milepost in North Carolina. With over 20 years’ experience on the Parkway, the authors share important details about every milepost with photos, zooming maps and helpful hints that will help visitors make the most of every mile.

No internet connection necessary to use all features. This app is self-contained.
Use the table view to set your current location on the parkway. Tap the scrolling milepost list at your current milepost to see the detailed view.

The Detail view provides essential information about each overlook on the parkway in North Carolina. Some locations feature photos while others feature localized maps. As you travel in either direction, tap the up/down arrows at the top of the screen to locate the next overlook. Or click the MP button to return to the milepost listing to browse through the entire catalog of overlooks.

The Roving tab provides information about interesting side trips along the Parkway and points out important highway junctions to help you get there and get home again. Double-tap the photo in detail view to enlarge the photo for more detail.

Zooming Maps tab provides larger maps for the entire parkway in North Carolina. Up/Down arrows allow you to view maps as you progress. Or use the MP button to return to the map listing to browse through all maps. Double-tap the screen to enlarge the map for greater detail. Maps scroll with a finger swipe to view features outside the boundaries of the screen.

The Extras tab allows access to application instructions, links to the National Park Service Blue Ridge Parkway web site and, after connecting to the internet from your device, includes the opportunity for you to send valuable feedback to us with suggestions for what you’d like to see in future releases.

Best of all, connect to the internet then click on “Send Photos” to send us your favorite snapshots of Parkway views.

I wanted to believe that this app (picture gallery) was bigger than what it is. Don't waste your money, there is nothing more than a pic for each milepost.
The claim is that this app is a community based app whereas we are all contributors - but I haven't found the hidden photo contribution button.

Waste of money, hope I get my money back


This app lacks of information and is incomplete. I can't conceive how it was approved by apple. People don't buy this app.

Truly Awful

I regret paying for this app. I should have read the reviews first. Literally useless. Don't waste your money.
