We want to reward your dedication to the mountain and encourage your lifelong relationship with its breathtaking views, native wildlife and stunning trails and paths.
The Bridge Club is a way for you to enjoy greater access to the wonders of Grandfather Mountain, to save on your visits here and to other area attractions, and to help build a bridge to the future for Grandfather Mountain so that generations to come can experience its nature and beauty the way we do today.
As a member of the Bridge Club, you receive:
- Unlimited free admission to Grandfather Mountain for one year (365 days from date you join or renew)
- 10% discount at Grandfather Mountain gift shops, restaurant and fudge shop
- Complimentary coffee, tea and hot cocoa at Mildred’s Grill
- Discounts on behind-the-scenes tours, guided hikes and family campout
- Discounts at Biltmore Estate, Tweetsie Railroad, Chimney Rock Park, the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad and Mast General Store
- Subscription to Grandfather Mountain digital newsletters

You may also purchase your membership by going inside the Entrance building on your next visit or by phoning the gate at 828-733-4337. If, after visiting Grandfather at the regular price, you decide that you would like to have an annual membership — bring your receipt to the Gate before you depart the mountain and that day’s admission fee will be applied to the cost of your membership.
