    Bring good shoes. The hike isn't long, but it makes up in length for climbing ladders on the side of the mountain. Coming back is worse than climbing up.

    Climb to the peak, it takes about an hour. Don't bring a dog because they can't climb ladders

    Get there before 11:00 a.m. or after 3:00 p.m. on summer weekends, holidays and fall color weekends. Also park at the Trails Parking area just below the summit and take the Bridge Trail to the top.

    Bring your camera and capture the 360-degree views from the Mile High Swinging Bridge. Grandfather is also a sanctuary where visitors can come eye-to-eye with bears, cougars, otters, eagles and deer.

    Park in the Hiker's lot and enjoy the Bridge trail to the top. It's a great little hike and worth the extra effort.
