Access Points -- To get here, take Route 340 west from Frederick. You will cross the Potomac River Bridge (the town is off the bridge to your right) into Virginia, and then about 3/4 mile later cross the Shenandoah River into West Virginia. The park's parking lot is about a mile past the Shenandoah Bridge, on the left.

Fees -- Park admission is $6 per vehicle, $4 per pedestrian or cyclist. The fee includes the shuttle bus and is good for 3 days.

Visitor Center -- Start at the Cavalier Heights Visitor Center, 1 mile west of Shenandoah Bridge, off Route 340 (tel. 304/535-6029). Leave your car in this parking lot (the park service has removed almost all parking from the lower town) and catch the shuttle here. The staff provides free maps and information on ranger-led tours (available in spring, summer, and fall). The visitor center is open daily from 8am to 5pm, except Thanksgiving, December 25, and January 1. Shuttles run about every 12 to 15 minutes from 8am to 5:45pm (later in summer).
