  • We had a great day here hiking up to the pinnacles and also hiking up to see the ponies. We saw 20 different ponies and speculated views.

  • Great rv lots that feel secluded and yet have easy access. Gift shops are reasonably priced in a pinch. There are great sight seeing ops here with great scenic drives all around.
  • Stayed at Hickory Ridge Campground for a week starting the day before Labor Day. Camp hosts were helpful, facilities were very clean and the views were spectacular. Numerous hikes available in the area that are accessible by all (including some paved paths). Ranger programming/talks looked great, unfortunately we missed all but the S'More Welcoming : )
  • I come here every September for the start of the Blue Ridge Relay. I have also visited on a Boy Scout outing. This part has a lot to offer from beautiful views, historical trails, wild ponies and more. If you are going to western Virginia you should try to visit this park.
  • Awesome Virginia highlands park. This micro-climate is wonderful for hiking, horse back riding, and camping. One side of the park borders Jefferson National Forest. The Appalachian Trail passes near by. Great place to park for multi-night loop back packing trips.
  • What a wonderful place to spend the day hiking and enjoying the beautiful park. We went see the ponies and were not disappointed! We also did a mile or so on the AT. It's a gorgeous park and we will be back to hike the waterfalls!
