Hike Mt. Rogers Summit - Highest Point in Virginia

I have wanted for years to do this hike. I convinced my husband and another couple to take this on during a weeklong vacation in August. We are ages 65, 58, 57, and 55, and some... read more

I have wanted for years to do this hike. I convinced my husband and another couple to take this on during a weeklong vacation in August. We are ages 65, 58, 57, and 55, and some of us are a few pounds above our ideal weight (heh heh). One of our friends had never been on a long hike before... More

Another great Virginia State Park. The second highest mountain in Virginia is at Grayson Highlands State Park. This park has so many trails to hike and some intersect with the Appalachian Trail. They have campgrounds for RV's and tents. They also have a great horse campground with lots of covered and uncovered stalls. The visitor center has a museum as... More

Go early!! This place will get packed. The wild ponies are the draw for most visitors, so do that trail first. We also hiked Cabin Creek Falls. When you come to the fork in the trail (follow the map) and stay left. This is the toughest part of the trail but it will be mostly down hill. This part is... More

The hike up on the mountains is a very nice hike with horses along the way. Campsites are nice with electric ones for RV's.

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!
