Great hiking

Great hiking trails around the lake. You can leave the cares of the city behind in this close-in piece of wilderness. Somewhat groomed trails retain a rustic feel.

Great get-away in the middle of a city! I love to come walk around the lake when I just need a "breather."

We went as a family and walked around the lake. It was beautiful. I would definitely recommend good walking shoes or protective sandals like Keens. The trail can go from dirt to wood chips and regular sandals are not a good option. We saw deer and herons while on the walk. There seems to be a fair amount of wildlife.... More

A great place for a nice walk. Some of the trails have signs that you are not allowed to jog on them. We saw deer and some interesting birds. There is a nice visitor center with clean bathrooms. A few more maps along the trail would have been nice for those of us who are directionally challenged but it is... More

Tucked away in a residencial area. This a great walking and hiking park for the whole family. And the park welcomes our 4 legged friends as well. Great place to see deer and bird watch. There is a trail that goes along the lake where you will turtles sunning themselves in logs and frogs jumping in the water. There is... More

You'll want to go back time and time again, need to have a chat with a friend, Perfect place! No dogs allowed on the trails however, they are allowed on the road. This place is lovely.

Radnor has been one of my favorite places for hiking in Nashville for many years. It is conveniently located just a few minutes from the city and it is a great place to spend an afternoon.

This park is nice and pretty convenient to get to. The path around the lake is well maintained and wide. This park does not give you any sort of adventure feeling but it is a nice walk with decent scenery. The road that goes through the park that you can no longer drive on is breaking up and a little...

This is probably my favorite park in the nashville area. Lots of hiking trails for all levels of fitness, abundant wildlife. I would say if you go during the summer to get there early in the mornings because it is very popular and parking can be limited.
