Fodor's Expert Review Grandfather Mountain

Blue Ridge Parkway Mountain Fodor's Choice
Bridge, Grandfather Mountain, Linville, North Carolina

Soaring to almost 6,000 feet, Grandfather Mountain is famous for its Mile-High Swinging Bridge, a 228-foot-long footbridge that sways over a 1,000-foot drop into the Linville Valley. There are 12 miles of hiking trails and some 100 picnic tables. Part of the area is a state park, and part is private land with a small admission fee.
