Rough Ridge Trail at Grandfather

From the Blue Ridge Parkway below Grandfather Mountain, you’ll find the entrance to Rough Ridge Trail. Although rocky at times, it’s an invigorating climb to granite outcroppings that will give you the best views of Linville Gorge, the Eastern Escarpment, and Grandfather himself. Find a rock that you like, and just sit and enjoy the breathtaking vistas all around you. We got lucky on a day in the low 60’s, with low humidity. You must hike this trail.
