Love the hiking here!

Easy to access, well kept trails and variable levels of hiking are all part of the Radnor experience. Only complaint is the lack of parking in the evenings or weekends

Radnor Lake is a State Natural Area that consists of trails that wonder around a lake and through the hills. Great hiking. Try the Garner Ridge and Lake Trail which is about 3.0 miles total. If you go on a Saturday go early because of limited parking. The only drawback to Radnor is the parking during busy times. Give it... More

We hiked here on Black Friday instead of shopping. The fall foliage was gorgeous and the trails are very well maintained. The only problem was the very, very limited parking. Get there early or you have to wait in line until a space opens up. Loved this park!

Loved the longer hike up the hills! We went on a gorgeous day in early November. The line to enter was surprisingly long, I've never had to wait to park at a park before. The park rangers were on hand with radios though to assist all the cars. I think some people parked outside of the entrance, at a nearby... More

Very nice trails through the woods. Quiet and tranquil escape from the city. Lots of wildlife, including an owl, deer, turtles. Beautiful views of the lake, little waterfalls, and bluffs.

Well, just moved here to Nashville and had some time on my hands thought I would check out the local parks. I went here, parked, went to the entrance, greeted with a sign that said: No running No Drinking No Eating No Dogs No Jogging I think I have a picture of it somewhere, it was hysterical. It was like... More

I have been going here since I was in high school and it has changed drastically over the years. For those who live in the city, this is a convenient place to get out in nature. The trails around the lake are an easy hike and handicapped accessible. It is a popular place for new moms with exercise strollers, local... More

Radnor lake has some nice trails and good scenery. The trail around the lake is paved and not too hilly. The ridge top trail is a nice hike. Parking is sometimes limited and not easy to find.

This is the most wonderful place to hike in Nashville. A true gem nestled right inbetween Green Hills and Brentwood. Lake Trail and South Cove Trail are my favorite. Parking is easiest on the Granny White side of the park.

This park is a great place to go on a nice leisure walk. It has both paved and rugged trails. The paved path goes half way around the lake and the rest is trail. The trails specify no running and no strollers. Lots of bird watchers and great areas to take photos.
