Hiked Dickey Gap to Damascus. Trail is good, well maintained. The Grayson Highlands are gorgeous and the ponies and cattle add a nice change. My Rogers is not really worth the walk (unless you want to check the box) as there is no view. There are terrific views after the next hard top. Damascus is a great place to come off the trail too.

We hiked from Bear Tree Gap to the top of Mount Rogers. The views from the balds are incredible especially on Buzzard Rock near Whitetop Mountain at dusk. This hike has it all including changing terrain and especially folliage. I have never seen changes in vegatation in 25 miles. What a hike.
