The Byrd Visitor Center (mile 51) interior exhibits remain closed; however, a contact station will be staffed in front of the building Saturdays, Sundays, and Presidents Day. Rangers will be present to answer questions from 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., weather permitting. Maps, pre-stamped passport cancellations, and Junior Ranger books will also be available. If the Skyline Drive is closed due to inclement weather, the contact station will not be staffed. The Park Store remains closed at this time.

All other facilities are closed for the winter season. Shenandoah National Park, Skyline Drive, and all trails remain open, but please recreate responsibly by following the guidelines below.

Recreating Responsibly
When recreating, please follow local area health orders and recreate responsibly by keeping social distance, wearing a face covering when social distance cannot be maintained, avoiding high risk activities, and staying home if you feel sick.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all Park functions and recommend that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
