Description

The Town of Lake Lure, lead by town manager Chris Braund, has recently created a beautiful park located on the north eastern flanks of Rumbling Bald Mountain. Buffalo Creek Park is now equipped with a three mile loop trail perfect for mountain bikers. The Town of Lake Lure also noted sizable boulders within the park and has invited us, the Carolina Climbers Coalition (CCC), as caretakers. This is an incredible opportunity because we can plan for mitigating user impact before it happens. It will also be a good alternative to Rumbling Bald, with similar rock. CCC board members and Access Fund members worked with the Town of Lake Lure to establish a trail that heads directly to the boulder field. There are about 6-8 sizable boulders and who knows how many problems, maybe 20-40.

Getting There

buffalocreekpark.org/ has great directions from anywhere in the world.

The new boulder approach trail is finished and easy. Less than 15 minutes. Park, head to the trail head, hike 5 minutes to the loop split. 100 yards after the loop split, look right for a newer less defined trail heading uphill.
