    Get the audio guide to play in your car as you drive through the mountain, but get out at the top to walk the Mile High Bridge and see the animals. Read more

    Mama took us to the Blue Ridge in the fall of 1987. I'll never forget the jaw dropping moment of seeing this mt view. Somewhere I still have photos from that memorable trip.

    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.
