The park is adjacent to the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, a part of Jefferson National Forest. Grayson Highlands State Park was originally named Mount Rogers State Park and was established in 1965. Grayson Highlands is a hotspot for the sport of bouldering. Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is performed without the use of ropes or harnesses. Instead, climbers only use a small rock face area and use a crash pad on the ground for safety. Grayson Highlands is home to 1,000 boulder problems, or paths, that have been established by famed climber and author, Aaron Parlier.
