Grandfather Mountain Purchased by North Carolina

posted in: Outdoors | 0

The State of North Carolina agreed to purchase Grandfather Mountain Monday, securing the conservation status of one of the State’s most recognized and cherished landmarks. This marks the second acquisition of a high-profile, privately-owned landmark in recent years (the last being Chimney Rock) and will bring the State’s total park count to 34. Many hiking trails grace the beautiful slopes of the mountain, bordered by the Blue Ridge Parkway and Pisgah National Forest. More information can be found on the Division of Parks and Recreation’s web page.
