Bird watching

Stunning loop and despite its heavy traffic at times, very well maintained. I saw an incredible assortment of birds, from common backyard friends (cardinals, titmice, nuthatches, red-bellied woodpeckers, robins, ruby-crowned kinglet, GBH) to some more exciting species (pileated woodpecker, yellow-bellied sapsucker, creeper, eastern blue birds, yellow-crowned kinglet). The waterfowl diversity is also great - ruddy, gadwalls, and ring-necked ducks were out today!

This is the second hardest of the three trails that take you off the pavement section of Radnor Lake. It takes you through lots of forest as do all the Radnor Lake Trails. Has a couple of good elevation changes. Great chance to see wildlife especially early mornings or late afternoons. All Radnor Trails see heavy activity on the weekends and parking can be a problem.

This route offers a little of everything in the park except for Garnier Ridge. You will have North and South views of the lake. The route starts at the East Lot, heads down Otter Creek Road then turns right onto Radnor Lake Trail. After crossing the East and North sides of the lake, the trail crosses over the spill water bridge and reconnects with Otter Creek Road. Turn left, then continue a short distance until you see a sign for South Cove Trail on your right. This section of trail meanders across three bends in South Cove before reconnecting with Otter Creek Road again. Turn right, then continue less than a half mile before returning to the East Lot.

Slight incline, maybe 1.5 miles of forest trail. Look out for a hidden gnome!

Peaceful trails, good amount of elevation gain, lots of birds, turkeys, and other wildlife. The paved trail and main lake loop can get a little crowded, but the other side trails offer a bit more solitude.

Nice trail system but busy. Go early or when cooler out. This hike was done when it was about 40 degrees and after a day of rain and it was beautiful. The lake trail is nice but is the busiest. Both the garnier ridge and south cove loop are a little less traveled and were really nice with the downed leaves adding some color This recording is for the entire trail system.

Great trail! Frequent benches to rest along the way. Beautiful views. The trail is covered in leaves so watch your step as rocks and roots are hiding underneath in some parts. Lots of wildlife activity.

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.

What I love about this trail is that it doesn’t allow TRAIL running, dogs, or bicycles. So, you are free to hike and enjoy nature without being run over. The wildlife is abundant, as are the wildflowers.

Running

Despite the tag and reviews stating otherwise you CANNOT run this trail. there are multiple posted placards which forbid running. this is sad because it's very runnable and quite fun. That said, I still ran it.

I only hike with my dog because 1. he's a german shepherd lab mix so he has all the energy. It helps to wear him out and helps me to "keep up" 2. He makes me feel safe. I was excited to do the full loop but when I got there I sae the no dogs sign. I was sad but we did enjoy walking where he was allowed to walk. Parking was really difficult, not a lot of spots and very busy.
