We went in summer, so (read hot and humid!) didn't do a lot of hiking around the lake. There is a small hike necessary to get to the lake from the parking lot, and it was enjoyable and lovely. Very green and fun for the kids. I would go again!

Hiking the Mossy Ridge trail Is both beautiful and strenuous. The two-hour hike takes you through all kinds of terrain and is quite the work-out. My husband and I love the peacefulness of the entire hike.

Radnor was a terrific place for a morning hike. First, you drive past impressive estates. Then you arrive at a tucked away and quiet wilderness. We saw a crane, hawk (sitting on a log), 2 fawn, and multiple lizards.

This is not an easy park to find - but, having said that, once you are there, ENJOY! The Lake Circle is an easy path with a number of benches, observatory areas with a heavy tree canopy. No runners, bicyclists, no picnicing or pets allowed on this trail. People seemed to really enjoy using this park that has much in... More

Beautiful - quiet park to walk, enjoy nature or converse with friends. You can decide where you would like to walk - difficult trails or stop and rest at your leisure.

Visited Radnor Lake on a Saturday and it was very busy. At the visitor center you can get a map, and then decided how far you want to go on a hike. At the visitor center there is bathrooms, water fountain, and drink vending machines. It's free to go to Radnor, but there is a place for donations. The lake... More

It is a pleasant natural trail park. It has multiple difficulty trail levels. The park has an indoor facility that includes a restroom with a small room showing a brief synopsis of the wildlife, landscape, and how the surrounding community began. During the hike, we encounter multiple deer to include a couple of fawn, an owl, and turtles.

Having spent a lot of time driving to Nashville we thought it would be nice to go for a walk somewhere. This park was just what we wanted. A nice little welcome center, friendly rangers and a lovely lake. There are several trails all well signposted. We took the trail round the lake. There was plenty of welcome shade by... More
