Great views of Lake Chatuge and surrounding mountains, can't wait to see it in the fall! Walkable on top of the berm, good parking, no picnic tables or restrooms. Well maintained.

Chatuge Dam and Recreation Area has great scenic views to enjoy. We walk the paved walkway along the lake. Also looked at the water going through the gates of the dam. Plan to Walk here often.

We walked across the dam and then the trail along the lake. Easy hike/walk, there are lots of birds in the middle of the dam and the walk is beautiful.
