About Buffalo Creek Wilderness


Over 1,800 acres of pristine wilderness lands in Watauga County, North Carolina just off the Blue Ridge Parkway! There are very few intact, privately-owned tracts of this size remaining in North Carolina. Many areas of the Buffalo Creek Wilderness are less than one mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway and only 12 miles from downtown Boone and 8 miles from the town of Blowing Rock.  Immediately adjacent to the Blue Ridge Mountain Club, the property has dozens of spectacular building sites and with elevations of up to 3,700+ feet. The property offers long range mountain views in every direction, including of the Charlotte skyline.

Buffalo Creek Wilderness is accessed by a state maintained road and offers a road system within its boundaries. A tract of this size has great development potential or would make a hunter or nature lover's paradise!  The majority of three headwater mountain complexes that meander throughout the property with numerous waterfalls and stream cascades. The property includes over 10 miles of streams and at the center of the property runs over three miles of Buffalo Creek, a native brook trout fishery, which flows uninterrupted into the Buffalo Creek Gamelands. With its uncharacteristic wide valleys and elevation changes, the property offers many recreational opportunities including fly fishing, hunting, hiking, horseback riding and wildlife viewing. This is a once in a generation opportunity to purchase your piece of the North Carolina mountains!
