The Buffalo Creek Upper Boulders Trail: A Hidden Gem of Rutherford County

In June 2023, the CCC received a generous grant of $22,288 from the Rutherford County Tourism Development Authority (TDA) for the development and maintenance of the Buffalo Creek Upper Boulders Trail, located in the Town of Lake Lure. Our organization has also received major support for Buffalo Creek from RHI Legacy Foundation and REI Asheville, with an estimated total donation for this project totaling over $50,000!


Access has arrived at Raven Rock and Hickory Creek Boulders!

In the Spring of 2023, the CCC worked with the land owners of Raven Rock and Hickory Creek Boulders to form a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) outlining stewardship tasks and access for the public. We are grateful to the landowners for their generous allowance of climbing on their property for registered individuals. In turn, climbers have stepped up and begun to take care of their land.

Table Rock Climbers Access Trail Project Receives Major Funding

Linville Gorge's Table Rock is an iconic and historic climbing destination. With over 400 feet of prominence standing over Linville Gorge, climbers have frequented Table Rock since the 1950's. Table Rock’s 100+ multi-pitch routes truly shine in the beginner to moderate level, making the area a great instructional and group climbing arena.
