Grayson Highlands is a must visit for the views and the wild ponies. Make it a point to not miss out on this gem!
Found a cell phone on a trail near Mt. Rogers. Would like to get it back to its owner. Was a...More
Grayson Highlands State Park is a great place to visit. The drive up is filled with beautiful country scenery and the views are spectacular. It’s a good park for families too. We didn’t have to walk far at all to find the wild ponies. They...More
Grayson Highlands park is famous for its wild ponies and we were here for that reason, and it didn't disappoint us.
After paying $5 for park entrance fee, driving up the mountain, you will pass Massie Gap parking. Its road side parking. its also parking...More
Grayson is an excellent park for day hikes. They have numerous loops of varying degrees of difficulty depending on who you're with. The views within the park are especially beautiful when you reach the Appalachian Trail. The ponies in the park also provide for a...More
A group of us went here for a little bit to hike before our evening plans. It was a lot of fun, the trail we went on was not hard and we got to see some wild ponies. The ponies weren’t even phased by us....More
What a beautiful place to hike. There are trails for all skill levels. The challenging hikes are more so because of distance than rock scrambling and elevation gain. But the views everywhere are second to none . I would recommend the Massie Gap Trail to...More
This is my second time visiting here and I enjoyed it just a much the second time as I did the first time. We did not have the best weather as the remnants of Hurricane Florence had passed through the area, but we made the...More
I was introduced to Grayson Highlands in 1993 and have been visiting every since. It feels like its own world of super interesting terrain that combines access to the Appalachian Trail (and many others) with both short and longer loops for single to multi-day hikes/backpacking...More
Five dollars/car. Pretty sure the times are generally 8a - 10p, but I wouldn't recommend hiking down through there after dark. Plan to be back at least near your vehicle by dark unless camping overnight.

Does anyone know about the bunk beds in the Camp Lodge at Grayson Highlands State Park? Are these twin beds? We are doing the Creeper Trail this weekend. Thanks!

Advice on vacation plans (10 Replies)
We are planning our first trip to the beautiful state of West Virginia and would like your advice on our itinerary. We plan to travel around the first couple of weeks of June. Please feel free to let us know if it is too ambitious for our time frame...that is one of my biggest concerns. I would also like to know if there is a great place I didn't include as well as any place I did include that wouldn't be worth the time. We are not city people...we live in the city(Orlando, FL). When we go on...More

Sounds like you have a lot planned! So glad you chose WV to spend your vacation.! There is lots to do in our beautiful state. The only thing I would suggest:: Day 5-6 sounds pretty busy. Beartown is beautiful and won't take too long to walk thru. Really...not much there at all. Good photo opps though. Falls of Hills Creek could take some time if you plan on walking down to the last fall. It is quite a hike..and tiring too. You might want to consider staying the night at Snowshoe Ski Resort...More
