Trevathan Pond Trail is a a public trail located at 3447 Lynch Street. The trail loops around a peaceful pond nestled in between rural farmland and woods for about half a mile.

Trevathan Pond Trail is a part of the TRACK Trail network under the umbrella of the Asheville-based Kids-in-Parks program.

Fishing is another draw for visitors, as the pond contains bass, bluegill, crappie and more. Fishing tickets are $2.00 a day or $25 a season and can be purchased right up the road at Michelle’s Community Store, 3315 US Hwy 258 N.

This trail is the result of a cooperative agreement between the Town of Fountain and the Trevathan family: Henry T. Trevathan, Jr., Lisa T. Briley, and Jean T. Caldwell.

The trail is accessed from the existing farm road that runs east off of Lynch Street and leads to Trevathan Pond. You can start in the woods and wind up circling the pond, or just take a stroll around the pond and back. The woods/swamp trail is sometimes a bit mushy.
