793 Rubin Walker Rd., Vilas, NC 28679 | 828.297.7117
Open Monday through Saturday year round.
The home of Dutch Creek Trails is a 132 acre farm owned by Mr. Bennie Yates. Mr. Yates, now in his 80’s moved here when he was 5 years old. He has told many tales about the place and people who used live around here. For instance, the valley, which you will ride through coming back to the barn is called the Luthrey. It is called that because many years ago a man by the name of Luthrey was found froze to death in the head of that holler; The mountain that is seen from the front porch is called Taylors Mountain; … so many stories. I have ridden the trails with Mr. Yates and he has a story about every valley and knoll. The views from the trails are stunning. Gazing out across lush mountains and valleys, Grandfather Mountain and Hanging Rock are profiled beautifully in the background.

Many years ago, early pioneers built a one room cabin on what it is now called Valle Crucis Farm. The hand laid chimney still stands at the entrance to the homestead as a reminder of the rich family history that continues to bless their family and guests.
