  • I've hiked both directions on the Appalachain Trail out of Massie Gap in the Park. The views are incredible, especially going South.  more »

  • Beautiful State Park. Has a wonderful hidden waterfall, but the main attraction is the ponies (obviously). We drove up from Charlotte for an overnight stay. Hiked through the park and a few miles onto the AT. We had an awesome view of the surrounding mountains, and a nice sunset. We were lucky enough to have a few ponies with their new foal come through as we were pitching our tent.
  • Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Such a breathtaking place! Came up for the Easter Egg hunt, which was a blast, and stayed for a guided pony hike which did not dissappoint. The staff was outstanding, educated and informed, and very patient with all the children. Cannot wait to come,back for another, longer, visit!
  • Grayson Highlands and the Mt Rogers area is absolutely stunning in early June.. great place to hike and camp. The views are spectacular!
  • I grew up in the beauty that is Grayson Highlands State Park. This park is immaculate and makes for a perfect trip! We love camping here and seem to find something new to explore every time.
  • Beautiful scenery. Wild horses roam the park freely. Hiking trails are well marked.
