  • The views from the swinging/singing bridge are breathtaking, literally; it's a long walk to the top in the cold. The museum is interesting, but I think the building is more of a store a restaurant than a museum. The natural habitats are five large penned in areas for a variety of local animals, so basically a small zoo. I would highly recommend this as a stop if you are in the area.
  • The view from the hanging bridge is spectacular. Since the parking facility on the summit can accommodate only a limited number of cars, expect significant pile-ups on the way up - especially during weekends and holidays. Like other tourist shops, the one here is over-priced.
  • One of my favorite places to visit in North Carolina. Depart is a little pricey to visit but want you get in you notice why cuz everything is so well taken care of and pristine. The restaurant that is located there has one of the best hamburgers I've ever had. My family really enjoyed visiting here.
  • This was by far the most breathtaking spot and Scenic views that we have visited in North Carolina. You can drive or hike up to the top of this mountain. Either way it's a little scary getting to the top!..
  • Great views. Watch out for uneven payment and steps not marked. Had a bad fall. Watch your children. Steep drops with no fencing in areas.
