One of my favorite lakes, Radnor Lake expands for miles and you could easily get lost but luckly there are trails to follow. We grilled out and had the best time with friends and family. You can go boating or jet skiing, or just enjoying the trails and the views.

Went to the park after Yoga and had an excellent time. Great trails that surround the lake. Easy to walk with nice wide even paths.

My family and I spent a beautiful morning hiking at the park. The trails are well maintained. There are options for all abilities. It was very relaxing and a great way to start the day! The only drawback, as has been pointed out, is the limited parking.

This is a popular place for a relaxing walk around Lake Radnor, just outside Nashville. Running and cycling is not allowed. You can walk the whole way around the Lake although a chunk of the route is away from the waters edge. The pathway is easy to navigate and there are more challenging paths too. Lots of wildlife can be... More

LOVE Radnor Lake and its various trails; all beautifully maintained. Needs more parking, even if its a bit of a hike to the lake.

Well maintained, paved foot path around part of lake, several hiking trails from easy and moderate. Small visitors center with friendly staff. No picnic areas, no dogs and jogging on trails kept this review from a 5.

Although it was hard to get a parking space because the weather was beautiful it was well worth it. Love stopping here when we are in Nashville.

Easy to access, well kept trails and variable levels of hiking are all part of the Radnor experience. Only complaint is the lack of parking in the evenings or weekends

Radnor Lake is a State Natural Area that consists of trails that wonder around a lake and through the hills. Great hiking. Try the Garner Ridge and Lake Trail which is about 3.0 miles total. If you go on a Saturday go early because of limited parking. The only drawback to Radnor is the parking during busy times. Give it... More
