A little bit of elevation. Great Lake view. Saw a chipmunk, a couple of turtles and some birds. Important: do not park at the trailhead. Part at the Strong __ Church nearby.

Nice trails with plenty of benches. Beautiful lake and thin forests with deer. Very peaceful hike. Crowded at times though.

Beautiful walk around the lake. Lots of turkeys, deer ands wood pecker or two. Perfect for families.

Beautiful trail. Plenty of foot traffic so safe for solo travelers. Views of the lake are wonderful.

What a great place to get out and enjoy Tennessee! The trail is well maintained and traveled. The views are awesome. There is a section that is a pretty steep climb. The parking is crowded, but not too bad.

Avoid the lake roundabout on nice days. Too many people talking about stupid things and ruining the vibe. Take the other trails for a bigger challenge and peace.

Great trail! Heavily wooded and secluded. It had some pretty steep ascents but also several peaceful bench stops along the way.

If you are looking for a bit of secluded wilderness this isn’t the spot. Busy even on a weekday at lunchtime. No pets allowed on trail. Pathway is well maintained mulch and gravel on the one side while the other follows an old asphalt road. Otherwise this is a great resource for the people of Brentwood. Plenty of squirrels and birds to watch. The trail is accessible to everyone.

I arrived at the park as the sun was coming up and walked the Ganier Ridge trail. There is enough elevation change to this walk that I took it slow. I saw many deer and lots of turkeys during the walk. Great park.

I was traveling through town and found this short hike close to the hotel. I stared walking shortly before dark and the fall colors were incredible. I took a few pictures that I just had to share with others. It was a perfect night to walk a scenic but short hike. I saw lots of families with small children and young couples enjoying the evening together.

Pretty Cool Trail. A zigzag elevation on the Moderate Trail. Lots of tree vines and wildlife. This was a pretty neat place with it being located right in Nashville.

Nice trail! About half was a path through the woods and the rest was on a paved trail! Took less than an hour to walk and it was nice to see how many others were there enjoying the day and walk as well!

Good quick 2 miles. Heavy traffic.

ok, views we're limited

great walking trails

Great hike for kids - pretty views and well maintained trail. Fun wildlife - herons, geese, ducks, hawks, deer, turtles. Beautiful in the cool fall.

3.95 by way of the garmin. Majority of the trail was well trafficked packed cedar chip pathway. Good vertical and decent at mid point, final mile or so was pavement or packed gravel. Lots of people around the lake. Much less people if you go up the incline to the ridge.

Beautiful trail with some pretty steep ascents. Much less traffic than the Lake Trail and I really enjoyed the solitude.

Lovely first cool day of fall. Pretty busy. Lots of herons on the lake. Saw a doe and two fawns.

Great trail on a weekday! Radnor Lake State Park is usually really busy on the weekends - so busy that you typically have to wait in line to park. But during the week, this is definitely one of my favorite trails in Nashville area. Just enough elevation gain to get your heart pumping, well kept trail, and you’re guaranteed to see wildlife along the way.

More of a walk than a hike, lots of people and not very many views of the lake.

Very easy hike (walk). Great for little kids. Tons of wildlife in the early morning. Great views.

Very pretty and good for kids.

Excellent easy nature walk. Beautiful views of the lake.

Enjoyable little hike that loops around the lake and often includes great up close views of lots of wildlife. I always see at least one deer and/or wild turkey. Not too much elevation gain or difficulty. The trail is mostly covered by trees so it’s well-shaded and very doable, even in the summer heat.

Nice easy trail. Great for all ages. Beautiful views of the lake.

trail was busy but very enjoyable. there wasn't enough parking for the demand. picnicking was prohibited. we ate lunch in our car :)

Lots of great shade and very well kept with mulch and gravel in some areas to help with traction.

Enjoyed the trail, shade and the wildlife. I’m glad we got there when we did because parking looks like it can be a challenge.
