A new trail was added to the now 1,527 acres of Buffalo Creek Park making it one of the largest town owned parks in North Carolina. This past Friday, May 4, the Ribbon Cutting ceremony was held at the Bald Mountain Farm just inside Rumbling Bald Resort for the official Grand Opening of the Weed Patch Mountain Trail. The backdrop to this ceremony held gorgeous views of Eagle Rock and the beautiful legacy farm and home on the property.
This new trail is 8.6 miles and offers hikers, bikers and climbers access to breathtaking views, clean mountain streams and massive rock formations. Excitement awaits! From the average hiker to the most advanced backpacking and rock climbing thrill seekers.
The ceremony celebrated the culmination of nearly a decade of conservation and recreational trails and honored the completion of the 8.6 mile Weed Patch Mountain Trail that connects Buffalo Creek Park to Eagle Rock.
The additional acreage to the Town of Lake Lure’s Buffalo Creek Park makes it 1,527 acres and one of the largest municipally owned parks in North Carolina.
Speakers included, Peter Barr-Trails Coordinator, Kevin Cooley-Mayor of Lake Lure and Trail Builder-Shrimper Khare

Not just a quaint country town anymore, Tryon, NC has put its mark on the map in more than one way. It’s always been a favorite spot for the equine enthusiast, but this year’s equestrian theme at the 3rd Annual Tryon International Film Festival had a surprising addition when EQUUS joined and brought some very prominent and skilled filmmakers and stars to the show. For those that may not know, EQUUS is based out of New York City and highlights and rewards the diverse and creative efforts of those in indie film, music, and advertising, who artistically pay homage to the horse through media. Some of this years winners include Best Feature: “Three Days in August” by Jonathan Brownlee and Best Tryon’s Overall: “Bound” by Daljit Kalsi.
This year’s judges include some very well known names in the film industry- Producer/Director Frank M Calo whose film “The Believer,” starring Ryan Gosling and Billy Zane, won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2001 Sundance Festival, and photographer/cinematographer Elma Garcia, who has beautifully directed many brand name commercials and worked with some of the best cinematographers in the world. She is also an Amateur Dressage rider and lives in Mill Spring, North Carolina.
Festivities included a Red Carpet Gala with a horse parade, producer/director and screenwriting workshops, cocktail party and awards ceremony. Films played throughout the weekend and consisted of equestrian films, documentaries, human rights and dignity films, short films and student films.
This was the first year Pinnacle Sotheby’s International Realty became a prominent sponsor for the festival and it was an honor to be able to support our community and all the people that were involved to produce such an amazing event.

Overall, the 4th quarter of real estate sales in Western North Carolina continued the trend of a slightly improving market; especially in the more affluent areas of Asheville and Hendersonville.
The Grove Park area, along with Beaver Lake and Reynolds Mountain show 27% increase in sales price and a 22% increase in units sold.
South Asheville including Biltmore Forest, The Ramble, and Biltmore Park also posted a higher 4th quarter compared to 2013, as did both Champion Hills and Kenmure in Henderson County.
Lake Lure again showed a decrease in overall sales despite the second highest sale on the Lake happening in December. Thankfully, activity has returned to Rumbling Bald Resort, which didn’t record a single sale last quarter and is only slightly down from the 2013 4th quarter.
