We go there all the time to walk our dog. Non-dog walkers can hike the trails up the hill, which are really nice. Lots of turtles sunning themselves on logs in the lake, pretty funny.

We really enjoyed our walk through the natural park. It is obviously well traveled by the locals as they stopped and talked to us along the way. Couldn't take our dogs on the nature paths though due to eco protection.

This is such a tranquil and ideal spot to get away. To walk around the lake will take you far away from the big city. You will feel like you have escaped. The wildlife and plant life is awesome. You will truly enjoy God's creation there.

The park has areas of flat paved trails and hilly unpaved trails, beautiful scenery and lake. Nice outing for a few hours of walking.

Our favorite state park that is close to us. This Park is beautiful and user friendly! Nice for a short walk along the spillway trail or a strenuous hike on the high ridge trails. Lots of deer come close on the trails. Lots of birds, squirrels, ducks, heron and turtles. Favorite hike is the Gainier Trail ! You will love... More

RAdnor lake is truly a treat. Minutes from downtown Nashville this man made lake provides a beautiful and serene setting for a morning walk or jog. In the fall, the colors of the trees reflecting off a morning still lake is breathtaking,

Recently made a stop to Radnor Lake and very happy we did! The hike was perfect, we walked the more easy hike around the river. There are harder hikes as well that I would have loved to try but didn't have enough time. Very clean, feels safe too! Would definitely recommend for all ages.

Great place to walk and not worry about bikes, cars, motorboats or any motors at all. See the critters in their habitat...turtles, fish, fox, beavers, etc. The trails were well cared for and easy to walk on...not hard surface but still easy to navigate.

If you need time to refleck and de-stress just go for a walk on one of the many path options they offer. All according to your skill and endurance. Un disturbed nature so beware of seasonal critters and bugs, along with plants that leave their mark. Wonderful place to walk in the city, but you will never know your in... More

This spectacular nature reserve is raw in its beauty, with deer and turkeys making there home in its wilderness. Visit at sunrise or sunset to watch the lake glisten.
