I was very surprised at the beauty of this state park. I like many of the contributors do a lot of hiking and expected this to be a typical Appalachian mountain scene. I was taken back by it's beauty and understand how it got the name "Highlands". I imagine this is very similar to an Irish or Scottish landscape. A... More

Hiked the trail with two teens and two adults on a Thursday in summer. Very few other visitors earlier in the day. Trail is listed as difficult but was not bad at all. We are fit, but only hike once or twice each year. There is a short stint you must ladder climb some tree roots and a short section... More

Camped with my wife and daughter @ Grayson HIghlands S.P. June 27-July 2nd, 2015 after taking a day trip there, a couple of years ago. The park is one of the most beautifully maintained parks, that I have been to, while still allowing for wildreness. The facilities (restrooms/showers) were clean and well maintained. There's hiking for every fitness & skill... More

So much beautiful scenery. The park holds various musical festivals during the year. While the higher elevations are not accessible in the winter, the rest of the park is spectacular in winter, There are picnic and camping facilities.

Great place for hikers, campers, picnics and just enjoying spectacular views. There are miles of trails, some with waterfall overlooks. The Homestead area is a great view of old, restored, log homes, barns and more. Check it out. The views are worth the ride. Look for Christmas tree farms along the way!

During a recent visit to the West Jefferson NC area, we decided to ride up to Grayson Highlands for our first visit. The first thing we noticed was the delightful drop in temperature and the crisp, clear air that came along with the higher elevation. The second thing we noticed was how beautifully this park was maintained. The roads and... More

I have hears about Grayson highlands state park from friends and family for years. I finally made it there this weekend. It had spectacular views. The state park offered multiple free events. We went to the welcome campfire on Friday night to toast marshmallows and make s'mores. On Saturday afternoon the kids had fun learning about Native American games. The... More

This park is beautiful and offers an incredible view at every turn. The wild huckleberries at the front of the park are amazing. If it's ponies you seek, hike the rhododendron trail at Massie Gap. Wear plenty of sunscreen and bring plenty of water. If you continue up the trail to the AT and hike about a mile or two... More

No amount of stars could aptly describe this amazing park. This was our 4th visit and it just keeps getting better. A beautiful campground, excellent campstore, a variety of amazing trails, including the AT, overlooks that rival the Scottish Highlands and did I mention wild Ponies? We have hiked all the trails in the park but every time we must... More
