The Blue Ridge Parkway - Ashe County Real Estate
the blue ridge parkway
The Blue Ridge Parkway is one of North America’s most iconic roads, and it runs directly through the gorgeous High Country Blue Ridge Mountains! Known as “America’s Favorite Drive,” the Blue Ridge Parkway is the most visited ‘park’ among America’s National Park System. Attracting 20 million visitors a year, the Parkway stretches for 469 miles from the Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive in Virginia to the Cherokee and the Cherohala Parkway in North Carolina. Milepost markers begin in Virginia and increase as visitors travel south through North Carolina. These Mileposts denote special overlooks, attractions, campgrounds, picnic areas, hiking trails and help visitors track their progress along this majestic road.

Regency Properties features Ashe County Real Estate, Homes for Sale Near Jefferson NC Parkway and listings throughout the High Country. The High Country is an area in Northwestern North Carolina and is home to 125 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Construction of the Blue Ridge Parkway began and ended right here in the High Country with the completion of the Linville Viaduct in 1987. Due to the threat of ecological damage to the rare and fragile ecosystems on Grandfather Mountain, great planning and engineering was utilized to construct an s-shape viaduct that skirts Grandfather Mountain. Now one of the most photographed sections of the Parkway, the Linville Viaduct is the most complex concrete bridge ever built. The combination of spectacular modern engineering and majestic mountain beauty make this section of the Blue Ridge Parkway a must see for visitors to the region.

At Milepost 271.9, E.B. Jeffress Park is just outside of West Jefferson, the home of Regency Properties’s spectacular Ashe County Real Estate. E.B. Jeffress Park was named in honor of E.B. Jeffress who successfully petitioned the government to run the Blue Ridge Parkway through Ashe County. The park features a beautiful half-mile hike to the Cascades. This trail starts at the parking lot and is a loop trail of moderate difficulty following Falls Creek down to the Cascades.
