Beautiful park and hike. Was a bit soggy after the ground thawed out in the afternoon (heavy recent rains).

The spur shown at approx 2.1-2.2 mile mark on the map is a wrong turn to a different trail head/parking lot, so you can skip that if you want to stay on the loop trail.

This was my second hike of the year. Even in January the trail was well maintained, and was fun and easy, with not too many people on the trail at once. Moderate is a good rating, as there is enough uphill to get your heart pumping, easy downhill, and enough flat trail on top to get some beautiful views! Nice features along the entire trail, as well. I definitely recommend for anyone looking for a good hike around Nashville!

have done all the trails here several times. very easy but absolutely beautiful right here in the city.

What a beautiful place to spend a couple of hours. I’ve lived in the nashville area for over 50 years and this was my first trip to Radnor. But it won’t be my last. I enjoyed reading about the history of the park as well. Such a nice respite in the middle of what has become a very crowded city. The trails are well maintained and easy enough for most anyone to enjoy.

Great walk with our dog. Still muddy from all the rain.

One of the more beautiful nature trails near Nashville. My wife and I have hiked this a few times. Very easy and doesn’t take long at all. We saw some whitetail deer, amongst other animals.

very fun trail, just the right distance and difficulty for a short hike/run. beautiful along the lakeside and interesting rock formations along the way.

Good trails. Very crowded. People not knowing which side to walk on or group taking up entire trail. Upkeep of trails was fantastic, just too many people.

Nice trail. Not technical but has a few hills. The mud was an obstacle today but overall this is a nice little trail-fairly heavily trafficked.

This is a great trail! It has great elevation, nice views, and relatively easy footing (I.e. not super technical) except when muddy like it was today. I will certainly run this trail again the next time I’m in Nashville!

like others have said it can get a bit muddy here but great trail with some cool rock bluffs near the lake good for a rest and view.

mostly an easy trail, but we made the mistake of going when it was stormy, which led to a bunch of mud and puddles. super good views though!

Great hike . Lots of people on the trail for a Thursday.

Great 4 mile trail with lots of water access. If it’s muddy, certain spots get slick. But overall fantastic.

This is a great spot for hiking in Nashville. It's very popular, so go early or on a week day if you want to avoid the crowds. The trail has some moderate hills, but nothing too steep or overwhelming. The views are better at Radnor Lake or on the Warner Woods Trail, but Mossy Ridge is scenic enough and a better workout. The distance is actually closer to 5.5 or 6 miles, because the parking lot isn't right at the trailhead.

Rolling hills, follow the single red blazes, all in all a good loop if in metro Nashville and need a trail. Nothing awe inspiring, pretty heavily trafficked, would be near impossible to get lost.

Nice. A bit muddy

I would call this trail easy. It follows the shoreline of the lake and can be quite busy during the nice days. We definitely plan to backpack the volunteer trail sometime soon

If you want to feel like you are deep in the woods without driving far from the city, this is your trail. Sure, there are parts that intersect the paved paths at points, but all the tall hardwood trees more than make up for it. There are two steep climbs at the beginning, but then you are at the top of the ridge line near Farrell Road, a remnant of the scenic unpaved driving road. After a while, you descend into Buggy Hollow where there are multiple foot bridges, although all the streams are dried up in the fall. Ascend again and you can split off the trail around the 2-mile mark to get to Luke Lea Heights with a good view of downtown Nashville. From here, it's all downhill back to the trailhead.

Beautiful lake view, had different trails from easy to difficult. There was more people than I would have liked but I see why, great little hike.

My favorite trail.

This trail is quite popular for good reason. I rarely went more than 5 minutes without coming across another person. The beginning and end of the loop parallels Vaughn's Creek which is picturesque. I was surprised how rocky the first quarter mile of the trail is as you ascend the hill. What sets this trail apart from most others around Nashville are the high elevations and the large old growth hardwood forests with some of the largest cedars and oaks I've ever seen. The climb to the top of this trail was pretty brutal for a beginner hiker like me, with the seemingly endless switchbacks, but I certainly felt accomplished by the time I reached the top of the highest knob. The rest of the trail takes it easier on the hiker.

Did this nice hike with my Frenchie! My frenchie got a little tired at points but we enjoyed the hike!

on Day Loop Trail

Good trail. Did the 3.9 mile day loop trail. It rained the last two days so I thought it would be super muddy. It was not! Little bit of ricks and roots. But not overgrown at all and only saw one other hiker. Little slippery when the sky opened up on us, but the canopy was good cover for the most part.

Very nice place to hike trail was very good on directions

Good and changes with season. Please correct your app. No dogs/pets allowed.
