Detailed Description:
US 211, a Virginia one-state US highway, travels through some beautiful scenery courtesy of the Shenadoah Valley. Beginning at I-81 (although VA 211 continues west of I-81), it is usually a 4 lane highway on flat ground and a 3 lane country road when crossing mountains. When crossing the Shenandoah Mountains, US 211 travels through Shenandoah National Park. Parking pull offs along US 211 in the park lead to the famous Appalachian Trail as well as shorter trails such as the Buck Hollow Trail and Buck Ridge Trail. US 211 does have two expressway-grade bypasses but it runs through towns on either end, with New Market on the western end and Warrenton on the eastern end.
