Parkway Entrances & Exits in Asheville
You'll find entrances and exits to the Blue Ridge Parkway at most state and federal highway crossings. One exception are Interstates I-40 and I-26. They do not provide direction access, but have signage to lead you. In Asheville, there are four primary entrances to the Parkway:
- Milepost 382.6: US Highway 70 crosses, the Folk Art Center is a short drive north. The best entrance for I-40 heading west.
- Milepost 384.7: US 74A, the best entrance from I-40 heading east.
- Milepost 388.8: US 25 crosses, from the Parkway, Biltmore is three miles north.
- Milepost 393.6: NC 191 crosses, the nearest entrance from I-26. The North Carolina Arboretum is located at this intersection.
Car GPS units do not work well on the Parkway, since the Parkway does not use street addresses. But you can find everything easily by the mileposts and an old fashion map!
