A great day hike and a beautiful view all the way up. Fantastic view although several people on the trail.

A beautiful hike, if you don't mind crowds! Try to avoid the weekend if possible. We visited in October, and the temperature was very pleasant. The first indicator of the volume of visitors was the traffic backlog just getting into the park. Cars were parked all along the road, so we finally found a spot and followed the pack. Some... More

We visited on December 31st and we were surprised by the number of people there. Although the office near the entrance was closed, the bathrooms were opened and we're very clean - and warm! Of course, we wanted to see the wild ponies. We started to walk our way up the Rhododendron trail after parking at the Massie parking lot... More

I've hiked here in the spring and in the fall and wanted to check it out in the winter. This place is gorgeous. Despite the sleet and freezing rain one day it was still enjoyable. The wild ponies didn't seem to mind the weather either!

We came to do the highpoint (which is actually outside the park), and I had read that it was a scenic walk, but I really had no clue that it would be this nice! This has got to be one of the most beautiful places in the east- And I have traveled to ALOT of places and am an avid... More

I went twice to Grayson Highlands State Park to climb Mount Rogers. The first time in August, the weather was not good at all with continuous heavy rain, so we didn't make it. We could nevertheless enjoy the many poneys which are living there. In October, for my second visit, that was fantastic: sunny skies, change of colors, and such... More

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.

Enjoyed the perfect fall wedding outdoors at Grayson Highlands. Could not have had a prettier setting than the area near the Wayne Henderson festival stage.

The views from this park are just simply stunning. We visited during the late leaf season, and were in awe of the beautiful vistas. The ponies were a treat too - though they are clearly habituated to humans. Although we're supposed to "keep a safe distance," that's a little difficult when the ponies see people and go right to them... More

Great hiking, beautiful vistas and wild ponies, who could ask for more. We hiked here on Saturday then rode the Virginia Creeper on Sunday. It was a nice little getaway! We started out at the Massie Gap trail head. The parking is on the main road, just go through the gate at the end of the field and you are... More
