We brought our dog for a hike at this state park and she was only allowed on the paved roads. It was a cute area.

Radnor Lake is in the heart of Nashville and is a great place to walk or hike. It is family friendly. People walk their dogs and bring their children. You will find turtles sunning on a log in the lake, or people bird watching. The Aviary is open about 3 days a week and is worth the up hill trek... More

The parking can be a bit crowded on the weekends, but this is a beautiful clean slice of heaven. Enjoy, look for turtles, beavers, deer and relax with nature!

We had a Family Reunion and on Sunday we all hiked around Radnor Lake State Park. We loved the park, the turtles, and the deer.

This is perfect if you want to get out and do a quick run in an area which will take you away from the City. Distance is short from downtown, and you are transported to a nice nature reserve, with a path to run around a calming lake. Nice workout for business travelers,

Had a great time hiking at Radnor Lake State Park. Different levels of hiking terrain and enjoyed the quiet of the area. Make sure you get there early as parking is limited. Would recommend to anyone!

Great trails will guide you around Lake Radnor. For those who want flatland for walking, there is a trail that will take you around the lake via flatland. For those who like hills and more challenging walking/hiking, they have a trail that takes you around the lake but up on the hills. Very well maintained and clean. Lovely views. Deer... More

I took a group of 10 students to Radnor Lake for an afternoon hike. We did the whole trail system around the lake and had an absolute blast. It went up and down the hills but was not too strenuous for any of them, and saw a ton of wildlife. There were multiple Turkey, deer, and they came right up... More

We just love to walk around this lake and woodland. You will see squirrels, turkey, deer and wonderful birds. Go just before sunset. A great place to leave the stresses of the day behind.

I walk around Radnor Lake as often as I can. There is a nature center there to keep you up with the latest goings on and rangers to point out special sightings of wildlife. Go to the website for special attractions. The walk around the lake is a nice stroll at your own pace with a couple of side trails... More
