At an elevation of 5,946 feet, Grandfather is recognized as one of the world’s most diverse nature preserves.

Dine in the restaurant or find a scenic picnic spot, browse the nature museum, wander the trails, go behind the scenes of the animal habitats, visit with knowledgeable naturalists, and stop for a treat at the fudge shop. Fill your day with family memories at place where wonders never cease. less
