Grandfather Mountain is a mountain, a non-profit attraction, and a North Carolina state park near Linville, North Carolina. At 5,946 feet (1,818 m), it is the highest peak on the eastern escarpment of the Blue Ridge Mountains, one of the major chains of the Appalachian Mountains.
Excellent fudge shop and great trails
I loved everything!
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.
Hold on to your sun glasses here if ya wanna keep them!! W I N D Y !!!!
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.
Cross the bridge and enjoy the view.
Enjoy the views! And watch your step!
Bring a picnic lunch :)
