    This has been on my calendar for a long time. Never been to Grayson and was wondering if trees are plentiful. Looking at vids and pictures I see a lot of open space. Would T.D. stands be a good idea?

    Trees galore in the campground where we hang. TD stand is your choice.

    Yep, the park Rangers know that we use webbing to hang by & take care of the trees, so they let us fan out into the surrounding woods.
    Plenty of room.

    If anyone coming from a similar direction as I and needs the directions, here they are.

    I40 to Hwy 421 north (in Winston-Salem).
    Then take I77 north.

    I believe it's about 10 miles up I77 to were you will see the 21 By Pass.
    Don't be fooled by the many other signs you will see before then for old or business 21, which snakes back & forth across I77, as well as 421.
    The 21 By Pass will be one of those less usual, double lane ramps that exit off to the LEFT (near Elkin).

    Hwy 21 will take you directly through Sparta.
    Might want to watch your speed & those orange lights. They have a reputation of increasing their revenue w/ the help of the "out of towners" that don't have time to slow down

    A few miles on the north side of Sparta, you may notice that to stay on Hwy 21, you would need to take a right beside a gas station. But DO NOT.
    Continue strait & you will then be on Hwy 221.

    After another mile or so, take a right on Hwy 93.
    This is a winding but scenic road through the mountain farm land.

    After a while, you will come to a stop sign. Take a right to continue on Hwy 93.

    Shortly after the signs say you have entered into Virginia, you will cross the New River & come to another stop sign.
    Take a left onto Hwy 58.

    Your next turn will be a left at a BP station which is also the Log House Restaurant.

    About 20 minutes up the road, you will see the sign & entrance road for Grayson Highlands State Park on the right.

    Good to see you looking for a hang in the hills. Now about that pony race - is Hickery going to foot race that pony or ride it around the campground!
