Due to projected heavy rainfall from Hurricane Florence, Grandfather Mountain will close for the day on Sunday, Sept. 16, to reopen at 9 a.m. Monday, Sept. 17, weather permitting.

The park will remain open Friday and Saturday, Sept. 14 and 15, during regular business hours of 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (with ticket sales ending at 5 p.m.), weather permitting. As Grandfather Mountain is a privately owned, nonprofit nature park, it is not affected by the N.C. State Parks closures.
