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!

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...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.

Remote with few conveniences nearby so no light pollution and quiet. Campsites are too close together given size of park. I drove 4 hours from Raleigh and was still up next to neighbors.

We went on a whim. Had an amazing time! We did part of the rhododendron trail. Kids enjoyed climbing on the rocks. We saw a lot of the wild ponies that were beautiful. Highly recommend!!
