Blue Ridge Country - May/June 2018 - BRPG 7
A Mile-High Day Well Spent
Grandfather Mountain's pristine scenery, trails of all levels and sweeping vistas rejuvenate mind
and spirit. At an elevation of 5,946 feet, Grandfather mountain is recognized as one of the
world's most diverse nature preserves.
Excellent Audio Tour & Exhibits!
Loved the audio tour! We could drive at our
own pace, enjoying the sights and stopping
whenever we wanted, then could pick right
back up with the tour CD! For an all-day
experience, we three women thought it was
the best $20 ticket we spent. Wildlife exhibits
(cougar! bears! eagles!) - nice walking trail Hugh Morton photo exhibit - swinging bridge!
- fudge shop with free samples! - museum with
history and even a chemistry lesson! Plus, don't
forget to have your photo with Mildred and her
cubs... so much fun! Seriously, plan to spend
several hours - you may even see the otters!

Walking across Grandfather Mountain's Mile High Swinging Bridge is fun
no matter what your age.
Take a good long look at forever.
Hand in hand is a wonderful way to share the awe and
delights that await you at Grandfather Mountain. Share
the joy today and help us preserve it for tomorrow.
