Grayson Glades Natural Area Preserve is a Natural Area Preserve located in Grayson County, Virginia. Its centerpiece is an extremely rare wetland type known as a mafic fen. Among the rare species found on the property are tuberous grass-pink, ten-angle pipewort, large-leaved grass of Parnassus, queen-of-the-prairie, sticky false-asphodel and Canada burnet. The site is at the headwaters of a small stream system supporting other examples of the community type.
