Grayson Highlands is Virginia's third largest state park with just over 4500 acres of land and is located in Grayson County near Mount Rogers National Recreation Area. Our elevation is higher than any other state park in Virginia and we are best known for our beautiful vistas and the wild ponies that live in the highlands. Expect to see spectacular views from our many trails and overlooks, such as the famous Sugarlands Overlook on the main park road. On a clear day, you can see for 70 miles and in the fall the red leaves of the sugar maples create a beautiful sight. The park offers 15 miles of trails for hiking plus year round access to the 2,184 mile long Appalachian Trail that runs from Georgia to Maine. For equestrians, we provide access to the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail, a beautiful trail that takes horse lovers 68 miles through national forest. This hikers paradise offers access to Mount Rogers, Virginia's highest peak. The park also offers camping, picnicking, fishing, hunting and horse stables.
