  • Yes, you have to pay $20 per person to enter the park and take advantage of the swinging bridge and views, but it is worth it, and the money goes to help maintain the park. The view is fantastic. The ...  more »

  • Went last week to Blowing Rock, NC and visited Grandfather Mountain the next day. It was crowded getting into Grandfather Mountain but worth the wait. This is "leaf season" after all. The swinging bridge was fun and the views amazing. The highlight was actually the town of Blowing Rock. We stay in Hendersonville, which was very close, but wish we would have stayed in Blowing Rock. This is the type town you dream about. Streets are safe to walk at all times of the night. No thugs, no homeless people, no rough folks. Just families along with both young and older couples. Carefree strolling the sidewalk, eating dinner in the many restaurants, enjoying coffee and desert in the many eateries. What a way to finish a beautiful fall getaway.
  • Beautiful overlook in the Blue Ridge Parkway. Swinging bridge could be reached by the elevator. Also there are nice treks with ladders. Worth the entry fees for the maintenance.
  • This is definitely an experience of a lifetime! The only place in southeast where you can feel 100mph+ wind speed safely. The mile high bridge is the place to be.
  • Breathtaking views of the mountain and the lake below. Amazing.
  • Good view of the mountain.
