Grayson Highlands is a beautiful state park in the mountains of SW VA off Hwy 58. The park boasts sweeping vistas, excellent facilities, and wonderful park staff. I went up for the Fall Festival to benefit the Rugby Fire and Rescue. There was an admission fee ($8.00). This covered the entire day within the park. You could leave and reenter... More

It is a beautiful drive along the improved Route 58 from Marion, VA to Grayson Highlands State Park, Mouth of Wilson, near Mount Rogers, this highest point in this state at the very top of Virginia.

Great views as you hike & fairly easy trails. Trails are also very clearly marked in case you forget your map! Perfect place to get breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. The ponies are a bonus!

We toured the Highlands State Park and visited the gift/museum on the top. Purchased some gifts. Learned a lot about the crooked trail in Virginia. Tried to see some wild ponies but didn't. The scenery was still worth it . By the way you have to go and find out about the ponies. They were really not wild. It was... More

This is serenity at its finest. It's so quiet there you could hear a pin drop. Make sure you wear your walking shoes! We hiked up to the huge rocks to get a great view. As soon as we walked through the gate we were greeted by the wild ponies! They are so friendly. It does cost a little to... More

I Rv'd here with my kids (teen and young), my parents, and friends. It was a great experience. The amenities were clean and easily accessible, the views were amazing and there were activities provided at the visitor center for the children. We well definitely be going back.
