The race begins in MacRae Meadows and ends at the top of Grandfather.  All proceeds will directly benefit upcoming renovations to the Grandfather Mountain Eagle Habitats.

Online registration for the “Critter Crawl” began March 1 with 500 available spaces for runners. Many spaces for the event are still available.  The cost per participant is $30 and includes: a free day-pass to Grandfather Mountain for the following weekend as well as a “Critter Crawl” t-shirt if the runner is signed up by April 19.  Awards will be presented to the top three male and female competitors.

Parking passes, available for $10 per car, must be purchased to park on Grandfather or at MacRae Meadows.  Spectators with parking passes will be able to park in designated parking lots on Grandfather Mountain and MacRae Meadows on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Shuttles will be available to transport spectators to the top from each parking area.

  • I was amazed with the scenery and the way the mountains just made my mouth drop in awe and wonder.  I have began hiking as a hobby lately after having a major back surgery in January 2010.  Now after coming there I have a new goal to hike up MacRae Peak so we will be coming back in a few months  and hopefully bring more people with us.  We really enjoyed the natural habitat and the bears. You people really know how to entertain us. The staff was very very and a special thanks to Jill on top of the Mountain at the Swinging Bridge for explaining the points and mountains to us.  She is to be my tour guide when I come back !
