Tonight there is a chance for some icing and sleet developing on our roads. MOST DEFINETLY A CHANCE OF BLACK ICE! Please slow down and drive careful.
During the afternoon the Entrance from Pumpkin Run to the top of the hill at Staghorn and Buck Mountain Road was coated with a layer of Chat Rock to help break up any light icing and provide traction. Come morning the road will be evaluated and salt and chat added as needed. AGAIN PLEASE SLOW DOWN AND WATCH FOR WORKERS on the Roads!

Established in 1995, Buck Mountain is a private, gated, residential community located in western Wilkes County, North Carolina. Just 7 highway miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, our homes are blessed with outstanding mountain views and/or beautiful cozy valleys.
Everything from comfortable cozy cabins to larger mountain homes can be found within the community. Encompassing approximately 2,800 acres with over 600 individual tracts, Buck Mountain's rural atmosphere encourages a slower lifestyle. Our community has it all - the conveniences of modern suburbia and the peace and quiet of country living.
Parks and Recreation
Hiking trails abound on Buck Mountain. There is a beautiful waterfall with walking trails leading to the top and calm pools for resting weary feet on a hot day. ATV trails run throughout the community. Only property owners may use ATVs in Buck Mountain. There is a pond for fishing (catch and release), a Pavilion for community or private get togethers, and a Memorial Garden to simply sit and enjoy the mountain atmosphere. Beautiful views are around every bend.
Should you wish to explore the surrounding area, enjoy the wonderful 'high country' of Boone. Appalachian State University sits prominently at the north end of Boone. King Street offers fun shops and unique dining. About 10 miles to the south, you can enjoy Blowing Rock. Not only a great place to see the vistas presented at the actual Blowing Rock, but you will find plenty of shopping and restaurants. Blowing Rock provides the wonderful Tanger Outlet mall shopping, while downtown Blowing Rock offers quaint little specialty shops and intimate dining opportunities.
