Lily pads and geese grace the surprisingly blue water considering it is a lake and not an ocean. Here you will find an assortment of serious walkers, devoted lawn chair sitters and even people who push their dogs in strollers.
The pebble grain track is wide and suitable to walk your dog or a great place to stroller a baby. Catch a cool breeze off the water and partial shade from mature trees nearly the entire way around. Plenty of people cast a line into the lake or pack a picnic to have an alfresco meal on the grass.
Parking is accessible with handicap options. The grade of the track around the lake is flat, and there are restrooms on site. Recommended as an easy place to walk. We highly recommend this beautiful place.
Bass Lake is located outside of Blowing Rock, on Highway 221. Map below:
