Plan Your Visit
Here are plenty of resources and information to help you plan a visit to Grandfather Mountain – home to the Mile High Swinging Bridge, Wildlife Habitats, Wilson Center for Nature Discovery, hiking trails, educational programs, special events and much more – all located along the 2.5-mile entrance road to the summit! We are open almost every day of the year. See our operating hours.
Grandfather Mountain is a rugged, natural landscape. Please be aware of your surroundings, supervise children and avoid all ledges. No alcohol permitted.
