Ghost Riders Avery 2014 Events

Spring to summer, fall to winter, there is never a dull season in the High Country of Western North Carolina. Area attractions and outdoor activities in Avery County ensure every visitor has a fun and enriching vacation. Your visit will be ripe with stories to tell those back home and memories to cherish forever.


You have two opportunities in 2014 to visit and party with the Ghost Riders MC of Avery County. Come to the High Country and enjoy this majestic area of scenic mountaintops, quaint small town villages, and raging rivers.  Come visit GRMC Avery on Friday (or before if you desire) and stay through Sunday (or longer if you like).  Visit the famous Grandfather Mountain, ride the Blue Ridge Parkway, see the Lynn Cove Viaduct, swim at the Elk River Falls and Linville Falls, climb Mount Mitchell and Roan Mountain.  In the summer water ski the Watuga Lake and in the winter snow ski Beech Mountain and Sugar Mountain.


The first event at GRMC Avery in 2014 will be The Top Of The World Party June 6-8 at the clubhouse located at 1515 Elk River Road in Elk Park, NC 28622.  2013's event featured 13 different clubs from North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.  Get your mom & pop's/family motorcycle club to attend and help GRMC Avery beat that record in 2014.


The second event at GRMC Avery in 2014 will be the GRMC Avery Anniversary Party August 15-17 which will also be located at 1515 Elk River Road in Elk Park, NC 28622.  Come party with the mountain district of the Ghost Riders Nation and other clubs from North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. This 2013 event also attracted 13 different clubs and over 125 attendees.  Both events provide free primitive camping and camper spots with no hook-ups.


Fishermen will find themselves in high heaven in the High Country, with large rivers and small streams providing challenging, exciting and abundant fishing.  Our county rivers are well stocked with wild trout, and musky and smallmouth bass being the most prevalent fish.  Keep up-to-date on NC catch and release regulations, and purchase your fishing license before you visit us at www.ncwildlife.org. 


Trails of varying strenuousness wrap around the mountains, hills, forests and rivers, allowing hikers of all levels of experience and fitness to easily navigate their way.  For Avery County and surrounding area trail maps and a breakdown of the difficulty and length of dozens of trails, visit www.highcountryhiking.com.  To benefit from the experience of an expert, try a guided hike from one of many companies offering half-, full- or multi-day treks.


If you enjoy horse back riding many area stables offer trail rides through country you wouldn't otherwise get to see.  Experienced and knowledgeable guides offer insight and instruction for riders of all levels.  Visit www.highcountryhorseback.com for more information about area stables and opportunities available for equestrians and horse-lovers.


If you love golfing Avery County's very own Mountain Glenn offers spectacular views, cooler weather and challenging courses. Surrounding area courses range from Par 3 to pro-quality, suiting every golfer's taste and level.


If there is any Christian MC Clubs located around Avery Co., NC that would like the field for Sunday Services it is yours for the asking.  The field is free of charge starting at 8 AM Sunday until ???  There is electricity & stage for a band if you have one available.

Ghost Riders Avery 2013 Events

Ghost Riders Avery
2013 Event Guide

March 22-24, 2013
Chief's 80th Birthday & Medicine Benefit

In 2013 we are moving Chief's Medicine Benefit party from June back to the 3rd weekend in March, which is Chief's Birthday.  Also we are going to change the location and this years event will be at Carter Co's clubhouse.  We are doing this for three reasons.  (1) It is easier on Chief to attend.  (2) Attendance camping will be much warmer at the bottom of the mountain than at the top.  (3) In Carter Co motels are more plentiful & less expensive.  All proceeds from this party will go to pay for Chief's medicine.  $6 donation which goes for clean restrooms & Band.


June 28-30, 2013
Top Of The World Party

If you attended any of Avery's parties in 2012 you know our clubhouse location is like being in a state park.  In fact just below us is the Elk River Falls, one of the most visited waterfalls in North Carolina.  The Elk River flows beside our clubhouse and river wading is at its best.  $6 donation which goes for clean restrooms & Band.



July 26-28, 2013
Ghost Riders Avery Anniversary

Don't miss your chance to party with the Mountain District Ghost Riders.  Easy access, camping, river fun.  Close (15 minutes) to the Blue Ridge Parkway & Grand Father Mountain.  $10 donation for clean restrooms and band.

It is our privilege to announce that author Katy Oliff Ishee is going to be our special guest for 2013.  She will be doing a book signing so bring some extra cash and buy her book, Pieces Of My Heart.  For anyone who does not know, there is a chapter about the GRMC Washington Anniversary of 1978 at the Devil's Looking Glass.  It will be our 31 year reunion.  Come out and make Katy's home coming a blast.
