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

Grayson Highlands is a large and lovely state park. We enjoyed hiking the Twin Pinnacles Trail - great views and we enjoyed the interpretive guide. We believe it's longer than indicated on the trail map though. When we entered the park, the ranger gave us a quick overview of the trails and she told us that some of the trail... More

I visited with my daughter in late June. Hoping to see the mountain laurel in bloom but a large storm wiped most of the flowers away. That did not make it any less special. We actually camped AR Hurricane campground,30 minutes drive away beside a creek. That was excellent also. We drove to GHSP each morning for 3 days to... More

This summit of Mount Rogers, the highest point in Virginia, is a great hike in Grayson Highlands State Park. Be sure to really look at the trail map or better yet bring one because finding the right Trails can be tricky to reach the summit. Also be sure to get in early start. We started at 3:30 PM and got... More

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
