“Scenic Vews of Alpine Peaks”
Near Mount Rogers and Whitetop Mountain, Virginia's two highest mountains, Grayson Highlands offers scenic views of alpine-like peaks more than 5,000 feet high. Facilities include a visitor center, campgrounds, and hiking trails leading to waterfalls and overlooks. Scenic horse trails and a horse camping area with electric and water hookups, stables and parking for trailers are available. The park provides year-round access to the Appalachian Trail and the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail. Average daily temperature during the main season is between 50-70 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and between 30-59 degrees Fahrenheit at night. The park can have snow as early as September and into late May. During late spring and early fall, temperatures well below freezing (i.e. between 15 to 25 degrees Fahrenheit) are not unusual. Also the wind chill is a major factor in the temperature difference from low-lying areas to the high country. Wind speeds at 4,000 feet can exceed 40 mph.
Excellent facilities. Clean bath house and cozy campground. Highly recommended.
