Fill your day in Linville, NC with wonder among Grandfather Mountain’s diverse wildlife, the most breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the exhilarating Mile High Swinging Bridge.
With different trails for every level hiker, you’ll be mesmerized by the gorgeous views as you ascend to the top. But besides hiking and sightseeing, Grandfather Mountain puts on a busy summer schedule for locals and visitors!
Join in on the Rhododendron Ramble from June 1 to June 16, where you can ooh and aah over the lovely blooms with staff naturalists.
The third annual Critter Crawl 5K starts in MacRae Meadows and gains more than 900 feet in elevation as it climbs Grandfather Mountain to end at the Mile High Swinging Bridge. The $35 entry fee includes a Critter Crawl T-shirt, parking pass and free day pass to return June 8-July 31, 2014. All proceeds directly benefit the Grandfather Mountain animal habitats.
