Forever committed to keeping Grandfather’s best interests in mind.

Just as there’s no one way to enjoy a mountain, there’s also no one way to preserve it. With this in mind, The Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation acts as the mountain’s protector, looking out for nature’s best interest. We engage in many environmentally conscious efforts, from solar panels to recycling. But perhaps just as importantly, we reach out to the people around us—and across the world—who can help keep Grandfather Mountain in the same pristine condition it’s enjoyed for eons. Our aim is to function as a shining example for environmental best practices — to show the world just what can be done to treasure a place so amazing, and to demonstrate how we can all benefit from respecting and caring for the land around us.

  • 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 !
