We visited on December 31st and we were surprised by the number of people there. Although the office near the entrance was closed, the bathrooms were opened and we're very clean - and warm! Of course, we wanted to see the wild ponies. We started to walk our way up the Rhododendron trail after parking at the Massie parking lot... 更多
I've hiked here in the spring and in the fall and wanted to check it out in the winter. This place is gorgeous. Despite the sleet and freezing rain one day it was still enjoyable. The wild ponies didn't seem to mind the weather either!
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... 更多
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 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... 更多
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.... 更多
