we visit Grandfather MOuntain every time we go to the Boone area. Love the ride up, the places to sit and look out over the area, walking across the bridge at the top. Tons of fun and a great way to spend a day.

Very nice hiking and climbing trails. The mile high bridge is accessible for everyone and the museum and nature habitats are very well maintained.

Grandfather Mountain is something to experience. Neither photographs nor written descriptions can adequately describe the beauty of the mountain and the views from the many stopping places going up. For those like me, afraid of heights, it can be a harrowing (but completely safe) drive to the parking area at the top where one finds a gift shop, restaurant, and the "Mile High Bridge." The road is made for Porsche's and BMW's, so if you're driving an RV, you probably shouldn't try averaging 50mph to the top. Every time I go to the mountain (usually for the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games held every summer) I promise myself that "this time" I will cross the damn bridge. Well, maybe in 2013 - or not. The bridge is a mile high in elevation, but that doesn't mean that it is a place that is 5280 feet down as the dead crow or a rock falls. There is a nice rocky gulch a couple of hundred feet under the bridge, not nearly enough distance to learn how to fly and not recommended. The gift shop, fudge shop, and restaurant will not make you cross-eyed when you see the prices, and the views from everywhere are stunning.Seriously, make an entire day of your visit. As mentioned by other visitors, there is a small zoo that all alone make the trip worthwhile for me. If you want good photographs of the animals, you will have to be patient. Everything happens on their schedule, which is not based on your time. So be patient, and you will get lots of good photographs of the eagle, mountain lions (or cougars, pumas, panthers, or any other cats large enough to ride). The otters are hard to spot, but the bears are easy because you can feed them. These are very large bears (600-800lbs) and so your cameras will be busy. (I will post some photographs if I can figure out how on this website.) Don't forget to visit the museum. By the way, in the mornings it is not uncommon to go through low clouds on the way up. All-in-all, it's God's country.
