Our first donated property outside of the state of Georgia

This lovely property is our executive director’s favorite! It is permanently protected and is available for public recreational use for hiking, bouldering, and bird watching. Located north of Asheville, North Carolina, Bald Mountain Creek Nature Preserve was our first property donated to us outside of the state of Georgia. The property shares a border with Pisgah National Forest and is very close to the Appalachian Trail and Wolf Laurel Ski Area. We will work with NC DENR wildlife, fishery, and forestry agents to protect and enhance its natural beauty, wildlife diversity, stream quality, and public recreation and education opportunities.

Please email if you are interested in joining the Friends of Bald Mtn Creek Creek Nature Perserve or to otherwise support the property’s environmental stewardship and recreation projects.

    Is this preserve open to the public? I see that trail maps are not yet available. Thank you.

      The trails are open to the public. There is one set that runs north starting near the Buck House Inn and another set at the new parking area at the switchback on Sconce Creek Road. You have to go through the wolf laurel gates to access the trails behind the Buck House Inn. We hope to have a public use parking area that doesn’t involve the gates but haven’t creatd it yet. You can email and i’ll send you the maps that i have. Bill
