Hiked today (Nov 18, 2018). Was planning to hike from Massie Gap, but was redirected here by a helpful park employee due to ice on the roads in Grayson Highlands. From what I understand, the other route through the state park is more scenic. This was still really nice - probably a bit easier, too. There are a couple of nice open areas for views. Otherwise, the trail is very icy and snow covered. Once you turn onto the Mount Rogers Spur Trail, it really is like a winter wonderland. Definitely worth it! Will look forward to doing another route or two up to Mount Rogers as well. Note that there is an outhouse at the trailhead on VA 600.
