Dark Ridge Creek, Balsam NC

Dark Ridge Creek flows down through three separate, adjoining tracts for sale just below the Blue Ridge Parkway in Balsam. The stream cascades for almost 2 miles through mature hardwood forest, from crystal headwaters peppered with waterfalls turning into a clear, wide mountain stream full of native trout.

A well-maintained gravel road with two bridges spans the upper 1100 acres and the over 25 miles of old logging roads that cross the three properties could easily be converted to horse, hiking, and ATV trails.

All tracts border neighboring Balsam Mountain Preserve, a 4000+ acre conservation community with world class amenities. Located 15 min. from the picturesque downtowns of Waynesville and Sylva and 45 min. from Asheville, it is remote enough to escape the city but close enough for a day trip.
