The Remarkable Rhododendron Ramble

Our staff naturalists can’t wait to share their excitement for the showy rose-lavender Catawba Rhododendron that blooms its way up Grandfather’s slopes throughout the month of June. Join us for special programs designed to help you get the most out of this memorable sight.

The Remarkable Rhododendron Ramble

June 1-June 14, 2015

rhodowelcome The Remarkable Rhododendron RambleThe Catawba Rhododendron is abundant all across Grandfather Mountain, from MacRae Meadows at 4,300 feet in elevation to MacRae Peak at 5,845 feet in elevation. Because the shrub abounds across this broad range of elevations, its purple flowers can be enjoyed at each successive elevation. The first blooms appear at the lower overlooks in late May and the display will arrive at the Swinging Bridge by the end of June.

Join us at 1 pm each day to participate in special programs and activities that celebrate this herald of summer. All programs and guided walks are included in the price of admission. For details, phone 800-468-7325.

  • My family and I (including our 4 year old son, our 14 year old daughter, and our 1 year old) visited Grandfather Mountain the day after Christmas. The weather was beautiful and the view was amazing. Walking across the mile high bridge and standing on the peak was a magical moment for me and my children that I will keep in my mind as one of those moments that helps get you through the rest of your less magical days.
