I can see why this was voted one of "American's Most Beautiful Parks" a few years back. I read a couple of negative reviews about the park staff, however, we found both the volunteer and the ranger were a nice as could be. They were helpful, informative and keenly interested in our visit. It rained but we still enjoyed hiking... More

This beautiful park allows hikers to hike through the highlands of nearby Mount Rogers, the highest peak in Virginia, as well as across a number of mountain meadows or balds. These meadows provide excellent views of the surrounding area. The balds are dominated by large rocky outcroppings clear of vegetation other than the occasional windswept tree and low grasses. We...

this is another great place to go for hiking,camping,picknicking,or sightseeing. It is a beautiful drive from all directions,just across the north carolina border(off hghy 58). You can hike to mt rogers,the AT and many other short hikes. To me the best is a hike up to where you can see beautiful views and on about any day the highland ponies.... More

Very scenic Virginia State Park with good hiking trails for all levels of expertise. Also, great for horse back riding and camping. We did a moderate hike and saw lots of horses. Great for children. We will be back.

We went to see the Highlands and specifically the horses. After driving for an hour we discovered that the park was closed for the next two days because of a controlled cull. While I understand the necessity for this, I was not at all impressed with the attitude of the woman ranger at the guest center. When we walked in... More

Grayson Highlands is a great pace to visit. Just $5 and your in a beautiful stat park in Virginia. This pace is visited year round. Lots of hiking trails take you along one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the area. My family used to go up there on Father's Day and have a really big picnic. There was... More

We camped here over a weekend in October. The temps were much cooler up here in the higher elevations. We didn't make reservations for camping so we got our spot in the only available area, which was where the people camped who had horses. It was a little more expensive (had to pay for a stall we didn't need) but... More

Visiting Grayson Highlands is like going to the Tundra. Great views of the area. Wild Horses and for the first time ever I saw Long Horn cattle. I did a 5 mile loop trail in a little over an hours. Beautiful area.

Let me preface this review by saying we are NOT a family of hikers. No experience. We do; however, enjoy beautiful scenery and the mountains. This place was recommended to us because my daughter is a horse fanatic. The Rhododendron Trail in the Massie Gap area of the park is supposed to be the prime spot for seeing the wild... More
