Grandfather Mountain is a mountain, a non-profit attraction, and a North Carolina state park near Linville, North Carolina. At 5,946 feet (1,812 m), it is the highest peak on the eastern escarpment of the Blue Ridge Mountains, one of the major chains of the Appalachian Mountains.
The Mile High Swinging Bridge welcomes all visitors to admire 360-degree panoramic views from Grandfather Mountain.
We enjoyed walking across the bridge with the wind whipping across. It was alot of fun. The views up there are amazing. They have a gift shop up near the bridge.
When you travel back down there is a museum,restaurant, and small zoo with bears, otters, elk, and mountain lion.
We enjoyed the visit!
