Radnor Lake is Beautiful anytime of the year, I love fall, listening to the leaves walking with a friend and my dog. However, Dogs are NOT allowed on the trails and joging is NOT allowed either. This is a place to walk with a friend and catch up on things.

Little over 1000 acres of Natural Area. Only place like this in the immediate Nashville, TN area. We had fun trying to spot many animals such as deer, otters, beavers, muskrat, bobcat, an coyote.

It is a great place to visit any time of the year. Even in January when chopped up Pine Christmas trees are sprinkled on the walking paths, you can enjoy the smell of pine and soothe your soul.

This is a great park to Hike. Trails are great with lot of animals of all kinds. I tend to go early to avoid the crowds, which can be quite a lot. One of the best nature places in town.

I love to walk here anytime that I can. A nice oasis in the city, and wonderful place to relax when city stresses become too much.

We just returned from Nashville a d visited Radnor Lake again. It is such a lovely place to go for a walk and get some fresh air. People who go there are friendly as well and i recommend it highly. At the moment the trees are in full autumnal colour and their reflections in the water are so beautiful. We... More

This is a well marked natural path and lake to enjoy a nice casual walk or more of a workout on the difficult path. It could take an hour or two depending on the route you choose. Plenty of benches to sit down and relax along the way. It is good for couples and families.

We stopped at Radnor Lake to get some fresh air and do something different while in Nashville. The parking off of Otter Creek is awful. We spent 20 minutes waiting in a line of cars to get a parking spot. I'm not sure if there is parking on the other side but if there is - take it! The main... More

This hike is a hidden gem. As other reviewers have stated the parking is limited but don't let this stop you from exploring the lake and trails. If at all possible go during the week to avoid the crowds. There is an easy strolling trail of about two miles around the lake and through beautiful woods. You can also choose... More
