To do near Grayson Highlands

Anyone know of any great things to do around Grayson Highlands State Park? We have 2 boys, ages 4 and 7. We’ll be there for a week in July, and we’re planning on doing a lot of hiking! Would love some recommendations on things to do/eat/see in the area.

You can do bike shuttle/rentals for the Virginia Creeper Trail out of Damascus, which is a really great town in general for little cafes and stuff.

Oohh! Great idea! Thanks!

There is enough to do and see right in the state park to keep them plenty busy and tuckered out. I didn’t need to leave the State Park other than replenishing a low food. The closest eats is outside the park, turn left and a few miles down on the right…but a sit down diner style is at the crossroads gas station another 5 miles. Great folk running that. If the pies and apple fritters are in stock grab the blackberry…made by local Mennonite lady

Thanks for the tips! Looks so beautiful there!!!
