Sugarland Overlook provides an outstanding northeast to east view of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains, it makes this location ideal to photograph the sun rising behind the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Located just inside the park entrance of Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia, Sugarland Overlook provides an outstanding easterly view of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. 

The Sugarland Overlook is located about a mile up from the ranger station and is on the righthand side of the road.  Sugarland Overlook is easy to access and has a lot of parking spots for visitors to enjoy the amazing view.  There is a small park fee to enter the park, but the views and hiking trails make it worth it.  The overlook is large, which will allow photographers to spread out.  Since it provides an outstanding northeast to east view of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains, it makes this location ideal to photograph the sun rising behind the Blue Ridge Mountains.   The Outlook is named Sugarland because of the many sugar maple trees that are visible from the outlook.  The view to the east has multiple valleys and mountains ridges, which will help add depth to your images.  After photographing the sunset, make sure you check out some of the amazing trails in the park.  Click here for some photography tips.
