This mountain park is next to the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area in the Jefferson National Forest. Grayson Highlands State Park was originally named Mount Rogers State Park and was established in 1965. Pets are allowed in the park but not allowed inside public facilities including the bathhouses, visitor center and office.

The views include woods, rock outcroppings, and farm land. Love all of the trestles. Easy, fun ride.

Amazing views. We rented a bicycle and we were dropped off at the top end of the trail. All you had to do was just sit on the bike and the slope does the rest. There is a nice little restaurant as well on you way. To me the best part of the experience was the amazing views.

Can't wait to go back and hike some more!
Loved eating the wild blackberries on the trail!

Best Trail - anyone can do it. This first 11 miles or so are all down hill!! (pretty much just coasting!) and then flater land. This is an awesome adventure - totally worth it!!

Fun hike with amazing campsites and views.

Beautiful Well kept State Park. There was a $7 fee to enter the park. We parked at Massie Gap parking area. Used the Rhododendron Trail,The trail is in very good condition but lookout for the manure! Got to see several of the ponies..that made the trip worthwhile. The trail is listed as moderate but actually I thought that it was quite easy. I went on past where the Rhododendron trail ends to just beyond where the AT crosses. The area is quite beautiful would like to come back and do more exploring

Great hike. Loved the ponies and the views along the way.
