One of the easiest trail we've been on. Great for small kids too.

Great trail! Super easy to get to from the city. We hiked it in a steady rain and the trees are dense enough we didn't get terribly wet. There's some nice climbs with easy footholds so you'll get warm, but nothing too exhausting or challenging. Keep your eyes open and stay relatively quiet because we spotted at least 5 or 6 deer close to the trail that were very cool to observe.

Easy trail, nice view, and it's within the Nashville area.

It's fairly steep for the first mile or so if you're coming in from the east parking lot. But the views and scenery are totally worth it. A must for an experienced beginner.

Our fav at Radnor. Parking off of Franklin Rd can be a problem.

Great trail for locals to get to without having to travel very far. Not super difficult, you can complete in an hour or two. Moderately trafficked, and make sure to get to Radnor early on a weekend or you may have to wait a while for parking. Afterwards you can add by doing the lake trail!

Yep. Decent. I went on a Wednesday morning and it was still quite crowded. Great little nature preserve near Nashville. Easy hiking. Nice lake. Lots of rules. No runners/running. No picnics. No dogs.
