Wild Pony Photography Workshop

Grayson Highlands Hike to Mount Rogers, VA

When you take a wonderful hike in the Grayson Highlands, you get the feeling you're above tree line.  The rugged and rocky terrain, and wind-swept areas all contribute to that feeling. The hike itself is pleasant and not too tough. In the State Park, you're often treated to the wild ponies free roaming the conservation.
Not only did we photograph the wild ponies but, we also took some time to enjoy and photograph nature in all its fascinating beauty with breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. We spent one cold night on the bald peak. Awesome views! Winds were tremendous and stargazing was unbelievable.

Trailhead: The park is on U.S. 58 midway between Independence and Damascus and is reached from I-81 at Exit 45 in Marion; turn south on Route 16 and travel 33 miles to US 58 in the community of Volney. Turn right onto US 58. Travel eight miles to the park's entrance.

From I-77, take Hillsville Exit 14 to U.S. 58. Travel west on U.S. 58, 40 miles to Volney. Turn left to stay on U.S. 58 and go eight miles to the park entrance.
