grayson highlands state park
One of our favorite parks to date. The trails were perfect, views were incredible and best of all there are wild ponies!! The ponies are scattered all over the mountain side, about a 1/4 way into your hike. The dozen we saw we all hanging with their buddies, so look out for herds.

Hike to the summit of Virginia. A hike that is worth every inch of it's 9+ miles in distance. If you're lucky, you'll be able to cross paths with some AT hikers which make for good conversation. At the top, be sure to go a bit deeper into the woods to find the summit marker!
