|Fire at Silver Creek Mountain Update
On Saturday, December 13th in the early morning hours, a fire started and quickly spread throughout our beautiful mountain we have been working so hard on. We have received an enormous outpouring of support from our own community, Brindletown Fire Station and their volunteers, the US Forest Service, and countless volunteers, firefighters, and local businesses. Many volunteers are still working hard to contain this unfortunate fire. At this time, it is estimated around 300 acres have been part of this fire. A map showing the locations can be viewed by click here. The fire is 100% contained at this point, and volunteers are continuing to monitor the area. It is estimated another few days will be necessary to fully ensure the fire is out.
We are very fortunate to report we have not lost any homes in this fire. The fire is still active and we ask that any property owner, guest, or visitor please give the professionals the room they need and do understand it is currently under their control. This weekends fire has been a challenge and we extend our sincere thank you to all of these volunteers and professionals who have put themselves in harms way to protect our mountain. As updates are available, we will provide quick updates on this website, as well as through our community Facebook page. If you have any specific questions or information, please direct them to any board member.”

MEMORIAL BENEFIT FOR THE FAMILY OF FALLEN FOREST SERVICE OFFICER JASON CRISP
The Silver Creek Community would like to give a special thanks to all of the members, guests, and the community for the great fellowship and donations to the Crisp Family over the weekend. The turnout was fantastic, the music was great, and we could not have asked for a better day. Following the trail ride, the community had a positive vibe and a fantastic time around the pool, grilling out, and listening to music. We raised around $1,100 for the family and could not be more grateful to be able to give back to the community. Thanks again to everyone for their participation.
welcome to our mountain
Hidden away on a mountaintop in western North Carolina, deep in a forest of towering hardwoods, is a unique community... This is the way one of the original brochures for Silver Creek begins.
Silver Creek Community is located in the South Mountains near the Blue Ridge Parkway and directly off U.S. Highway 64. Only nine miles from Morganton, NC, the community is within a short driving distance from famed attractions such as Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls and beautiful Lake James.
At the heart of the community, at an elevation of over 2500 feet, is our lodge, cabana and pool. Where else can you take a cool dip in a pool and have before you a view of the beautiful mountains, even viewing Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak in the eastern United States. This is truly a one-of-a-kind community.
We have some reminders we'd like to share with all traversing the mountain. Please keep your speed to 15 mph and under. While driving the turns please take them wide to avoid damaging the road. Remember, the vehicle ascending the mountain has the right of way. The vehicle coming down the mountain should carefully pull to one side of the road, stop and allow the vehicle coming up the road to pass. This minimizes the potential for wheel spin when starting up on an incline and saves the gravel base of our road. Please share this with your guests or contractors as they join us on the mountain. Courtesy is important and safety is our number one concern.
