Great place to go for a run or a walk. There is a nice trail around the lake which makes it easy for either.

We love driving around this tree-lined lake...think Walden Pond. Everyone is out walking, running, walking their dogs...and canoeing,

Enough shade to run in summer. Romantic walk from bird sanctuary to lake. Must have a permit for dog walking , boating or fishing. Warden is usually there checking.

What a lovely place! Boardwalk trails were well done and easily accessible. No one was there but us and we were able to picnic with a front row seat to a spectacular sunset and watch and hear nothing but the birds around us.

On the near-north side of Asheville, this lake has paved and good trail walk-way all around. Wonderful place to re-collect oneself, walk the dog or wander with a friend while chatting.

This is a beautiful lake, you can walk on the trail. In the winter it freezes and is so pretty, you can see houses all around as you walk, very relaxing.

Wonderful little lake. You need a permit to walk your dog and the bird santuary next door is beautiful

Thought we'd take our little dog on a nice lap around the lake but were approached by a park official and asked to leave because we were not residents of the area. Pretty lousy way to treat the tourists and guests who keep your town...More

I was lucky enough to visit as the trees were turning yellow, orange and red. It was gorgeous! I must have taken 100 pictures during my hour-long walk.

You can fish in Beaver Lake, but you need an NC fishing license and also, because it is a private lake, you will need to pay $50 for a fishing/boating license. It's only catch-and-release. Frankly, this isn't much of a lake... More
