This park has to be one of the finest around. Between the fresh air, mountains, trails(including the AT which runs through it) and ponies, there is enough to keep you occupied for days.

If you travel Interstates, Grayson Highlands is probably off your radar screen. But if you like the backroads then take a trip down VA 58 and visit Grayson Highlands SP. It is well worth the windy road to get there. The park has some great...More

What a great State Park. We had read about the hiking and scenery and it was all true. Great trails, great ponies and it is as easy or hard as you want it to be. I would absolutely recommend visiting this park. It was beautiful!!

Loved the ponies and vistas. Wear good shoes--rocky trails. Worth seeing for sure! Plenty of trails for bringing your horses to ride also. The terrain is unique from other places in the mountains around. It didn't feel like VA. Hiking poles are helpful here.
