Just a short leg stretcher walk but kind of nice even though the lake is half dried up

Sunset stroll close to beautiful Black Mountain. If you have no time and need to stretch, this is the place.

This is a public park with a playground, lake, tennis courts, bathrooms and gazebo. I wouldn’t consider it a hike. It’s a nice flat stroll around the lake. Lots of ducks which was fun for my 3 year old. The photos I’ve seen made it look breathtaking with beautiful views. You can see mountains in the distance over the lake, but you also see all the houses in the neighborhood and all the buildings surrounding the park so it’s not as serene as I thought it might be. The water is kind of mucky looking. Fun for our 3 year old to play and run around. Not something I would come back to for the “hike.”

Not a hike, but pretty walking or running loop around a small lake with great Mountain View's. Perfect for families. Can fish and has a playground.

This is really just a short walk but is pleasant and very easy. A short walk from downtown Black Mountain. There is a picnic area.

Bird watchingNo shade

Not sure why this comes up as lightly trafficked, it’s usually pretty busy. Also not a hiking trail at all, but the lake is beautiful and there are plenty of birds for watching. Great for a senior pup!

This is a good walk, but I wouldn't call it a hike. If you need to walk an old dog, or if you have an injury, this will let you mosey along, watching ducks, coots, herons, and an occasional osprey, if you come in warmer months.

Really just a leg-stretcher versus a hike/trail. However, it gets four stars for the view. Perfect for a run or taking the pup for a walk. We actually grabbed lunch from the Veranda Cafe and sat on a blanket in the shade beforehand.

Nice for a quick relaxing walk around the lake. Only downside, there are a lot of ducks and geese so a ton of goose poop. Watch your step.
