Interpretive Ranger Programs

Interpretive Ranger Programs

Meet the people who know Grandfather almost as well as the squirrels do.

What kind of flower is this? How did this boulder get here? Did Native Americans live on the mountain? Grandfather Mountain inspires questions of all kinds. And there’s nobody better to answer them than Grandfather’s Interpretive Rangers. Friendly and knowledgeable, they’re on hand to discuss anything from geology to weather to the making of Forrest Gump on the mountain—making your visit even more remarkable.

Look for Interpretive Rangers by the Swinging Bridge and other popular sites.

  • I have been coming to Grandfather Mountain since I was a small child. The change of seasons is more markedly pronounced than anywhere else I've ever been. Every season has it's own sights and smells and of course brings you a different pleasurable sensation of feelings every time.
