After a wonderful dinner at one of Black Mountain's many fine restaurants, regular visitors will schedule a "digestive" walk around Lake Tomahawk. Just a few blocks from town in our quaint city park, Lake Tomahawk offers a well lighted level path for safe strolling in the evening. Adjacent to the lake are open lighted tennis courts and a children's playground.
