Fantastisch state park met een gamma aan wandelingen om uit te kiezen, van makkelijk naar heel uitdagend. Dé grote uitdaging bestaat erin om de wilde pony's te vinden die zich vrij in het park bewegen. Wij troffen ze op de wandeling naar Mount Rogers, het hoogste punt van Virginia dat zich net buiten het park bevindt. Degelijke gift shop ook waar ze water en gekoelde dranken verkopen, maar zo goed als geen eten. Best op voorhand boodschappen doen voor de picknick.

Our favorite park of all times. We love sitting and watching the wild ponies. We always find them the hike is fun. Sitting up in the mountain rock with wind blowing feels amazing everyone should give that a try

We wanted to check out this state park based on the reviews. If you are an avid hiker, you will definitely enjoy it, however we are not. We parked at the Rhododendron Trail and used the stinky pit toilet then began clambering up and up and up the rugged, rocky, uneven trail to try to get a glimpse of the wild ponies. We climbed about a mile up to where the staffer at the gate told us they usually are where the AT crosses the trail but never saw them. Then began the hike back down. We drove all around and never saw a single staff member, other than the one at the gate where you pay to come in. With no cell service at all and the absence of staff, it was not at all something we enjoyed.

It was a cool day sunny a mile walk to see the wild ponies. There were two colts and they kept walking toward people to pet them.
The scenery is so pretty. Rhododendrons were plentiful.

We enjoyed hiking around in Grayson Highlands State Park. We took our dog on the Cabin Creek Trail, which is simply stunning. Be careful if it's been raining, as the trail can be slippery near the creek. It's a pretty gentle 2 mile loop trail. We also hiked up the Rhododendron Trail and saw the ponies, which was neat. The views were stunning.

What a lovely park. We hit it after visitor center was closed for season, but our main purpose was accomplished. Several trailheads offer possible approaches to Mt. Rogers, VA's highest, and the AT passes through it. I was very excited to see the park's resident wild ponies - as advertised LOL!

Grayson Highlands is at the top of just about any ranking I could find of the best state parks in Virginia. Nestled between Mount Rogers, the state’s highest peak, and the North Carolina state line, the park is accessible only by the serpentine Highway 58. I must admit, there’s nothing I love more about driving than taking a curvy mountain road a little too fast.

Invigorated by the drive, even the $7 park entry fee couldn’t wipe the smile off my face as I arrived at the trailhead at Massie Gap. Hopping on a horse trail for a short stretch, I found myself on the spur trail that carried me up to the Appalachian Trail. This was my first hike of any notable length on the famed AT.

The section around Mount Rogers is incredibly popular for day hikers and through hikers. There are incredible views from the ridge, the balds, and the rocky knobs. On top of this, the herds of wild ponies draw many visitors young and old. Introduced to the area many years ago, the ponies add an extra level of intrigue to an already desirable hike. I passed an awful lot of people on the trail for a Wednesday. I couldn’t imagine the popularity on a weekend.

The trail itself is rocky and rugged, and you’ll have to concentrate with most every step to not turn ankles or trip over rocks. This is a hard thing to do, since I didn’t want to take my eyes of the beauty of the mountains on the horizon or the search for ponies on the nearby hillsides. As it turned out, the search was not a hard one today, and I must have seen fifty ponies (though I may have seen some twice since this was an out and back trip. The way I went was a five-mile trek to the point where the trail to Mount Rogers juts off. There is a faster way up, but true to form, I did not take it.

The half-mile spur to the summit is unremarkable as far as views are concerned. It is ironic that there’s no view atop the state’s highest peak. However, the forest setting almost takes you into another world. I’ve never seen a forest quite like it. There was something majestic about the moss-laden conifers. Standing on the highest spot I could find, I labeled it good enough and headed back down.

Passing the rocky tops and the ponies of Wilburn Ridge once more, I caught some more photos in slightly better light than I had the first time through. The whole day was a mixture of overcast to partly cloudy. The sun did its best, but the clouds won out most of the day. By the time I finally reached the parking lot, I had covered 10.9 miles in about 4.5 hours.

With some energy to spare, I crossed the parking lot to the trailhead to Big Pinnacle and Little Pinnacle, and eventually to the visitor center. Having picked up a snack and a souvenir at the gift shop, I headed back to the car, though not without enjoying the views atop the pinnacles. What a blessing to be at an overlook 5,089 feet above sea level on a gorgeous spring day, all alone!

Descending back to the car, I shut down the AllTrails navigation having covered 13.3 miles and having climbed over 2,400 feet. A bit tired, but grinning ear to ear over the visit to Grayson Highlands, I headed home to my wonderful family, deciding that one day, when the kids are older, we’ll try to come back and go searching for view and ponies together.

A beautiful state park, with lots to offer. We enjoyed the scenery, walking a bit to see the wild ponies (They're really quite tame and friendly, but for safety sake - do not pet or feed them), seeing the visitor center, and talking to friendly people who were also visiting the park that day.
