Life at BRMC Explore the great outdoors
The High Country brings the outdoors to life. It is here, in the northern corner of Western North Carolina, that Nature's playground is fully realized. Spring, summer, fall, and winter present BRMC owners with limitless possibilities to get outdoors—both inside the gates and out.
Take off on miles of forested trails and scenic ridgelines specially designed for UTV/ATV usage. BRMC, who is partnered with Brushy Mountain Powersports, is one of only a handful of communities to offer this sought-after amenity in Western North Carolina.
Trail Network and Hiking
Our trail network is as vast and varied as those found in many a national park, snaking across all 6,000+ acres of BRMC mountain land. Unspoiled beauty abounds. Families will enjoy 50+ miles of scenic trails and forested landscapes to explore throughout the change of seasons. Download our custom Trail Map.
Freshwater ponds and creeks abound at BRMC. In fact, there are a number of coveted fishing holes with tucked-away nooks and crannies along the 64 miles of streams on property—all brimming with mountain, rainbow, and brook trout. There are also several small ponds that are home to bass and bream.
Water, Streams, and Falls
BRMC lays claim to 64 miles of creeks and streams on property, intermittent and perennial, along with pocket wetlands, and a variety of waterfalls, all of which are mapped. Our current state classification is ORW, which stands for “Outstanding Resource Watershed,” a designation we intend to maintain through careful use and preservation of our natural resources.
Flora and Fauna
BRMC is pristine and preserved, sculpted and nurtured by Mother Nature, and home to a wide variety of indigenous flora and fauna that thrives throughout our 6,000+ acres. Chesnuts, maples, black and white oaks, and towering pines abound. The land is also teeming with deer, pheasant, wild turkey, otters, and hundreds of bird species that also call BRMC home.
Yadkin Point Park
There is no shortage of green space at BRMC. Our newest park—in the Yadkin Point neighborhood, complete with fire pit—and will serve as an inviting gathering place for families to have a picnic, throw the Frisbee, or watch the sun set.
