Best views! Best Hiking! And there are ponies!!!!

We came to do the highpoint (which is actually outside the park), and I had read that it was a scenic walk, but I really had no clue that it would be this nice! This has got to be... read more

We came to do the highpoint (which is actually outside the park), and I had read that it was a scenic walk, but I really had no clue that it would be this nice! This has got to be one of the most beautiful places in the east- And I have traveled to ALOT of places and am an avid... More

I went twice to Grayson Highlands State Park to climb Mount Rogers. The first time in August, the weather was not good at all with continuous heavy rain, so we didn't make it. We could nevertheless enjoy the many poneys which are living there. In October, for my second visit, that was fantastic: sunny skies, change of colors, and such... More

We had a great day here hiking up to the pinnacles and also hiking up to see the ponies. We saw 20 different ponies and speculated views.

Enjoyed the perfect fall wedding outdoors at Grayson Highlands. Could not have had a prettier setting than the area near the Wayne Henderson festival stage.

The views from this park are just simply stunning. We visited during the late leaf season, and were in awe of the beautiful vistas. The ponies were a treat too - though they are clearly habituated to humans. Although we're supposed to "keep a safe distance," that's a little difficult when the ponies see people and go right to them... More

Great hiking, beautiful vistas and wild ponies, who could ask for more. We hiked here on Saturday then rode the Virginia Creeper on Sunday. It was a nice little getaway! We started out at the Massie Gap trail head. The parking is on the main road, just go through the gate at the end of the field and you are... More

Remote with few conveniences nearby so no light pollution and quiet. Campsites are too close together given size of park. I drove 4 hours from Raleigh and was still up next to neighbors.

We went on a whim. Had an amazing time! We did part of the rhododendron trail. Kids enjoyed climbing on the rocks. We saw a lot of the wild ponies that were beautiful. Highly recommend!!

Visited during to see colors on trees. Cabin Creek Trail was our favorite. About 2 miles with several waterfalls along trail. Not too strenuous. Good Views of Tennessee, Virginia and NC from Pinnacle Trails. Wild ponies on Rhododendron Trail - only about 1/2 mile and easy walking.

Fall color was a little later than usual this year so I am glad you were able to catch it. Took a while to cool off. I am glad you enjoyed your visit to Grayson Highlands and appreciate you took the time to write a review. Your information will be helpful to potential visitors. More

Even though we only live @ a little more than an hour a way, we typically make our annual trip the last full weekend of September for the fall festival. This year was year 25 for us. We love Grayson Highlands as much as we love the Smoky Mountains. It is def a little peace of heaven to us. There... More
