My wife loves to go walking here. We run into so many friendly people. Avoid mid days on Saturday and Sunday as it is often crowded. It is so peaceful early on a Saturday morning and a wonderful way to start our day. One of the best places to go walking in Nashville!!

This visit was, more or less, spur of the moment. It turned out to be a good choice. It was hot, but the trails afforded us plenty of shade. The wild life was abundant even on a warm summer afternoon. The kids saw deer, woodpeckers, owls, rabbit, plenty of turtles, and even a fairly large water snake in the creek... More

A beautiful and serene place for a walk. You stroll around a lake often seeing deer, turkeys, turtles, etc. It's about a 3 mile walk around the lake. You can make it longer and more challenging by adding on an uphill portion

I've heard about Radnor Lake, but just got to go hike around on Saturday. We didn't have much time & it was a pretty busy day there, but it was so beautiful & serene, regardless of how many people were there. A ranger was directing traffic & was SO friendy & I will definitely be back!

If you want to get out, see nature in its undisturbed state, and get a good walk in I totally recommend Radnor Lake walking trails. It is literally one of the most serene and beautiful places I have been to. If you need to unwind and meditate, go there.

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.
