With elevations up to 5,089 feet, Grayson Highlands is the loftiest state park in Virginia. From the highest point at the Pinnacles, you’ll find breathtaking views of surrounding mountains, including Mount Rogers (5,729 feet), the tallest peak in Virginia. The overall feeling is not that you’re on an isolated elevation but more like you’re clinging to the roof of the Old Dominion. Originally known as Mount Rogers State Park, Grayson Highlands became part of the state system in 1965. As you enter the park from US 58 at 3,698 feet and ascend to the visitor center at 4,953 feet, you get the feeling that you’re climbing into heaven.
