About Us

sept2011 About Us

Millions of years old. And we’re just getting started.

Grandfather Mountain has been an amazing place for hundreds of millions of years. And our most inspiring goal is to keep it that way far into the future while helping visitors escape, explore and understand. We think it’s important for everyone to experience the wonder that can be found here, but also to respect the nature and geography that make it so wonderful. Through conservation, preservation and protection of the mountain’s precious natural resources we’re working to make sure that rare and common species alike will always feel at home here—and so will the thousands of visitors we welcome every year.

  • I was amazed with the scenery and the way the mountains just made my mouth drop in awe and wonder.  I have began hiking as a hobby lately after having a major back surgery in January 2010.  Now after coming there I have a new goal to hike up MacRae Peak so we will be coming back in a few months  and hopefully bring more people with us.  We really enjoyed the natural habitat and the bears. You people really know how to entertain us. The staff was very very and a special thanks to Jill on top of the Mountain at the Swinging Bridge for explaining the points and mountains to us.  She is to be my tour guide when I come back !
