Welcome to Hornbuckle Valley, home to a wild ecosystem at the base of Waterrock Knob, the highest peak of the Plott Balsams.

From mountain peak to valley low Indigo Eagle Sanctuary includes waterfalls, creeks, swimming holes, spring water, mossy campgrounds, tipi and cabin lodging. We offer plant walks, primitive skills workshops, sweatlodges, drum circles, yoga classes, reiki treatments, waterfall hikes, and a variety of ceremonies and retreats. Get Involved!

Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway in Maggie Valley, our sanctuary shares a border with Cherokee reservation land. Come visit pristine waterfalls, enjoy barefoot walks along the plush carpet of moss and become immersed in the sensory zen to sing you deep into the heart of nature.
