We were just driving around and stumbled upon this lake. That's when we found out it was a bird sanctuary. We wanted to stretch our legs so decided to walk the 2 mile trail around the lake. The trail is flat and very easy to...More

This area in N. Asheville is a private lake where you should give a donation to help maintain the lake when you walk around it. There is very little parking and it tends to get busy. The nearby bird sanctuary is nice, but very small....More

We went here to exercise and get some fresh morning air. Signs posted require a special permit for walking a dog. We enjoyed the park. Parking extremely limited.

Beautiful reflections and scenery. Quiet path under trees around lake is very peaceful. You may need to park at Bird Sanctuary and there's a wooded trail there, too, though I haven't tried what many joggers seem to enjoy This is a lovely, well maintained haven.

Absolutely ridiculous, got kicked off because we didnt have a dog permit, and the permit is $50, $5 would have been fine but $50? Ridiculous, go to carrier park.

My husband is a fanatical birdwatcher. This is one of his frequent stops. I never get tired of coming here. When you walk in, it's a hidden paradise. Streams, different kinds of trees, ponds, quiet, peaceful. And he always sees a new bird!

In North Asheville, the Beaver Lake area is great for walking. It is dog friendly with provided bags for your Fido. The trail encircles the lake (~ 2.5 mi, all flat) Beautiful scenery & views. Some parking @ South end.

Park at the nearby Bird Sanctuary and walk over to Beaver Lake. You can walk the paths by the lake or sit and enjoy the view. Either way, you'll enjoy your visit.

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

I totally agree with you about charging folks walking their dogs. It should be free if all the rules and conditions of Beaver Lake are respected and followed.
