The last of a 6 state HP weekend. Flew into Knoxville, then hit the HPs for TN, GA, SC, NC, KY and VA. This is my 45th state HP. I hiked up the Mount Rogers Trail from VA603, 13 miles RT. It's a beautiful hike!

Took the Appalachian trail approach from Elk Gardens up state road 600. 9 miles round trip. It was a complete whiteout and I got snowed on the majority of the way. But I had a great time. Was alone and didn't see a single other person the entire hike.

Very nice area, stayed at Grayson highlands camp ground was very impressed. Great views up until a quarter mile of the summit. Was able to get within 4 or 5 feet of the ponies.

jeffh25Neat place  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2010


I ate my way up the lower slopes as the whole place was covered in Blackberries & Huckleberries, then saw the ponies, then all of the sudden at the top you feel like you're in the Pacific Northwest. A little rockier trail than I expected (you're almost scrambling a few times, almost) but just a really cool hill. HP # 22 also.

Beautiful high country around Mt Rogers. I was reminded of some of my western summits more so than those of the southern Appalachians. Stayed @ The Place in Damascus and hit the VA Creeper on mountain bike the next day. One of the best outdoor areas of the eastern US for sure!

Climbed this in the pouring rain, with only a brief respite for about a mile and a half to and from the summit. Good thing for raingear!

Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2010


We hiked from the overnight parking area near Massie Gap, admiring the flaming azaleas at lower elevations and tons of pink rhododendrons at higher elevations. The views along the trail were spectacular most of the way. We encountered the wild horses a few times. A few were somewhat aggressive, maybe because they had foals, either blocking the trail or herding us up the trail. What a beautiful place! HP26

Hiked in a cloud most of the time and spent the night in the 2-story shelter with three other hikers. Completely unique and fun.

Easy enough stroll through high grass. Great hike with several other giant rhododendron forests to hike through nearby.

I spent the night at Greyson Highlands St Pk and woke to overcast skies and cold drizzle. The hike to Mt. Rogers follows the AT and passes through some beautiful country. No views from the top, but views along the way made the hike worth it.

I loved this hike, and can't wait to go back and camp there someday. The ponies were extremely tame and friendly, and the hike was absolutely gorgeous!

I go to Rogers every year. It is an awesome mountain with a ton to do. You can ride a pony and then go bouldering! Fun place...
