It took me years to finally come due to the price associated with entry. We are a large family and couldn't justify the cost for all of us. I took a weekend trip with my friend and could stomach the price for one entry so finally went. The entry fee is why I rated 4 vs 5 stars. That being said: It is Beautiful! Please dress accordingly to include shoes with good tread for the trails. Please make sure you only do trails you KNOW are within your skill level.

Assuming youre a nature/state park fan, you can have a good 1/2-3/4 day at Grandfather. From animal exhibits to trail hikes to the Mile High Swinging Bridge, GM has a little bit for everyone. Even the drive up itself is fun. Weekends are packed, especially during peak season changes and during the summer. But Id recommend a winter-time visit, too. Since COVID, advanced reservations are required except for Annual Bridge Club Pass holders.

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 :)

Great experience. The swinging bridge must have really moved when it was made of wood but now that it's made of more sturdy materials it doesn't move much at all. It was still fun to walk across with the wind gusting over 50mph today.
