Grandfather Mountain is the highest peak in the Blue Ridge mountain range and a globally recognized nature preserve. Stand head and shoulders above the surrounding region, be struck with awe by 360-degree views of mountain ridge after mountain ridge retreating to the horizon, and discover sanctuary for the human spirit.


The Mile High Swinging Bridge was built to give visitors easy access to thebridge.jpg breath-taking view from Grandfather Mountain's Linville Peak. The 228-foot suspension bridge spans an 80-foot chasm at more than one mile in elevation. Surveys show that the journey to the other side is always considered the highlight of a trip to Grandfather Mountain.



Grandfather has seven environmental habitats for black bears, bear cubs, river otters, cougars, bald eagles, golden eagles, and white-tailed deer.
