Bald Rock &
Panthertown Valley Details

Bald Rock is a very special mountain community that sits high above beautiful Sapphire Valley, North Carolina. Situated at the peak of our namesake mountain, the gated grounds encompass 778 acres divided into 120 mountain home sites. The property contains numerous creeks and waterfalls, a rare mountain bog, and 9.2 miles of hiking and equestrian trails. Of special interest to nature lovers, Bald Rock borders the spectacular U.S Forest Panthertown Valley Backcountry Area. In the words of the Forest Service: Panthertown Valley, referred to as the Yosemite of the East, lies on the eastern continental divide in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains.

 

With more than 25 miles of designated trails in this 6,300 acre backcountry area visitors can enjoy deep gorges and broad valleys, mountain bogs and granitic rock domes, tranquil creeks and plunging waterfalls while hiking, biking or horseback riding. Bald Rock owners enjoy direct access to this mountain wonderland by virtue of a connecting Forest Service trail that is approved for hikers, bikers, and horses.

 

Bald Rock is extremely well-maintained with paved roads and underground utilities. While it is never a bad thing to have 4WD in the mountains (especially in the winter months), our cottage is easily accessible despite the 4200 feet of elevation. Don't forget to bring your mountain bikes and hiking boots- we have amazing trails inside the community as well as direct access to 6300-acre Panthertown Valley which boasts over 25 miles of trails.
