Description:

Grayson Highlands is Virginia’s third largest state park with just over 4500 acres of land. This beautiful park is located in Grayson County in southern Virginia. It is the HIGHEST state park in Virginia.

The park is best known for beautiful vistas and the wild ponies that live in the highlands. This is one of the few places in the south where Fraser Fir trees still grow. Expect to see spectacular views from all of the trails and overlooks. On a clear day, you can see for 70 miles. The park offers 15 miles of trails of which most will be used for the races.

You will see waterfalls, streams, rhododendron tunnels, 100+ year old built stone walls, views of two states and more single track than you can imagine!

This is the only trail race within Grayson Highlands State Park! You will have a view of Mt. Rogers, the HIGHEST point in Virginia. This race runs over Little Pinnacle or Haw Orchard Mountain, at 5,089 feet, making it the HIGHEST race in Virginia!
