Anyone who works or lives in Mitchell, Avery, Watauga, Ashe, Alleghany or Wilkes counties, along with guests traveling in the same vehicle, are invited to visit Grandfather Mountain for $3 per person during the month of December 2015 with proof of local employment or residency.

In lieu of cash, you may each bring three cans of food per person for distribution to area food pantries.

Grandfather Mountain is open daily, weather permitting, except on Christmas Day. The park also closes early on Christmas Eve.

    I would like to know why Caldwell County is not included in on this special since part of Grandfather Mountain is actually I Caldwell County?

  2. Wish you would add Carter County to that list…..lots of people from Roan Mt. TN and Elizabethton would love t o get in on this deal. We love Grandfather Mt.
