Radnor Lake may not be the emptiest place for hiking in Nashville, but it is definitely the prettiest and that's why it draws so many people. Runners and cyclists are kept off the trails so wildlife and patrons aren't disturbed, and the prohibition of those activities brings a sense of calm to the area. Deer are frequently sighted walking near people and by the lake itself. The trails are easy to moderate and I saw a first or second grader doing a steep climb with her dad. At high points in the park you can see through the trees to the rolling hills outside the city. There are benches throughout the park which make Radnor Lake a beautiful place to read or meditate (if you get there early enough.) Highly recommended for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy stopping to smell the roses and taking in scenery.
