Journey across this unique attraction, and take in all of the views like the thousands of people who have gone before you. The beauty will astound you, and you will quickly understand what makes this a must-see destination this fall!

Walking & Hiking

With 11 trails that range in difficulty, there is certainly something for everyone, no matter your skillset. Grandfather Mountain State Park’s backcountry features the more challenging hikes. Hikers can access the the trails inside Grandfather Mountain State Park for free from trailheads outside the attraction.These trails give you the opportunity to explore this spectacular state park and get up close to the nature and wildlife that call Grandfather Mountain home.

Wildlife Habitats

Grandfather Mountain features seven environmental habitats where you can see cougars (which no longer live in the wild on Grandfather Mountain), white-tailed deer, black bears, bald eagles and river otters. Observing these animals up close in their native habitats is an exciting way to experience these majestic creatures up close. Environmental habitats are large enclosures that allow visitors to see animals in natural settings. These exhibits differ from those found in city zoos because these enclosures were built around the animal's’ native habitat.

Mildred’s Grill & Picnic Spots

Mildred’s Grill offers a variety of delicious food for you to enjoy during your visit. Conveniently order ahead of time and delight in a scenic picnic at one of the 140 picnic tables located on the mountain, or dine-in and take in the views from the large windows while savoring your freshly cooked meal.
