Loft Mountain: a new vision

The Shenandoah National Park Trust is working with the National Park Service to re-envision the Loft Mountain Wayside Area, mile post 79.5 on Skyline Drive. Loft Mountain serves as a hub in the park’s South District, with its popular campground, numerous trail heads, amphitheater and wayside restaurant.

What Loft Mountain lacks, however, is an attractive and functional destination for visitors to learn about Shenandoah National Park and all its magnificent features and to interact with park rangers. The vision for Loft includes an exciting indoor/outdoor education and recreation destination with robust opportunities for people to connect with their park. The entire project will be built with environmental sustainability in mind–and will be the first LEED Certified Construction in Shenandoah National Park. Stay tuned for more information.
