Grayson Highlands State Park
Imagine a piece of Canadian wilderness resting amid Virginia’s tallest peaks. Visit Grayson Highlands State Park and the adjacent Mount Rogers National Recreation Area and see a world filled with spruces and firs, mountain bald eagles and wild ponies. Mount Rogers, Virginia’s tallest peak, provides hearty hikers unpredictable weather and a tree-covered peak. An easier climbing option is nearby Whitetop, the state’s second tallest mountain.
