Beech Mountain, North Carolina: Alpine Town in the Shadow of Grandfather Mountain
The town of Beech Mountain is surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains, but one towers above them all—Grandfather Mountain. At 5,946 feet, it's the tallest peak in the range. One of the most popular attractions here is a mile-high swinging pedestrian bridge with 360-degree views. Visitors can also explore the mountain on 11 hiking trails at the Grandfather Mountain State Park. A few miles north, Beech Mountain Resort encompasses 51 miles of biking trails and a popular downhill skiing area that transitions to scenic lift rides and hiking trails in the summer.
It's also worth taking a spin on the Blue Ridge Parkway, which can be accessed 10 miles south of town. The scenic byway winds through the heart of Appalachia, passing stunning mountain vistas and historic small towns along the way.
