You’ll Love The Wild Ponies Along This Magical Forest Hike In Virginia

Chances are, you’ve heard of — or have perhaps encountered — the magical wild ponies of Chincoteague Island. (In case you haven’t, you can read all about their annual swim here). Yet fewer people realize there are more wild ponies that live up in the mountains of Virginia. These majestic creatures reside along the slope of Mount Rogers, the tallest mountain in Virginia, and you can admire them from a magical forested trail. Head to Mount Rogers National Recreation Area and prepare to be dazzled by the mountain views, gorgeous terrain, and presence of these miniature horses.

Grayson Highlands State Park is located along Grayson Highland Ln., Mouth of Wilson, VA 24363. Have you seen the wild ponies of Mount Rogers? We’d love to hear about your experience!
