This is the best place to visit for all kind of ages . The beauty of this park is you just need to drive and you can reach top of the mountain Things to note 1. You can listen to the park introduction audio which has all details 2. You can stop at multiple location and there are few worth watching stops 3. Roads are but curvy but well managed 4. Visit animal museum, kids will love it 5. Spend some time on top of mountain
We recently visited grandfather Mountain for the first time. I was hesitant about the admission fee, feeling it was a bit high when taking the whole family. However, I was impressed with the fact that they give you an audio, CD or flash drive with informative information and nice music while you're driving up. There's an adorable mini sort of zoo, fudge shop, gift shops, cafe, museum, trail, Great picnic spots and it's absolutely gorgeous even in winter. I highly recommend.
It was a great family day! The fall weather was perfect. There was a fair amount of people there so be prepared to wait in a few places, but I am sure it was due to the fall foliage and people on fall break. There were so many great hiking areas, but be prepared for lots of up. Make sure you take water and adequate supplies. The views are spectacular and the staff is super friendly. The animal exhibits are well done. Excited to go back again at another time of the year.
Just a wonderful day visiting Grandfather Mountain! We all enjoyed it so much. Beautiful views from all the vantage points we visited. Absolutely go visit if you're in the area. Don't miss this opportunity!
It's is a good place to easily spend a hole day. We explored just 20 percent of it. Walking a mile high bridge, stopping for food and picnic spot. It took almost 4 hours. But looking at the map, there are lots of activities to go around. One of the hike in here is 4 hours (round trip). Rangers were friendly. $22 per head. I will return to this place :)
