Laurel CarrellI made it to the top! We had a beautiful, breezy, clear day last fall and the views were AMAZING, but coming down was terrible. Should have taken the 7 ladders and 2 cables trail, but took what we were told was the "easier" trail. It was a massive boulder field and much harder for me to navigate.

Rita RempWe tried to climb Grandfather Mtn. but the trail was practically straight up, I thought I was going to have a heart attack, so we turned back and found a less agressive trail down off the mountain.
