Great trail, and trails around this lake! Really good for seeing wildlife in its natural state, a little too organized for me I’m not use to rails and lots of traffic the whole hike, very pretty lake though and lots of great spots to take photos. This is a great place to take younger kids but if you’re an experienced backpack hiker you probably wanna go elsewhere. I assume if you don’t want much traffic definitely try and go on a weekday! Had to park at the church about a half mile away.

Great trail with shade. Traffic was just what we were looking for.

Beautiful, well maintained trail that was moderately busy. Parking can be a challenge, so prepare to spend time locating a spot. For clarification, this is signed as the “Lake Trail”, not the “South Lake Trail”, which is a slightly different trail.

nice little trail.. good long walk around the lake, but not so strenuous can imagine this being hot and humid in peak summer

For some reason the fun police and signs say your not allowed to run...lol Great trail though.

first time using this app and first time at Radnor. Will be back to check out more soon!

It appears this map is for the Lake Trail and Otter Creek Road Trail, not the South Lake Trail. Might be worth changing the name to avoid confusion. Either way, love this route. Very easy hike/walk with lots of varied scenery being half trail/half lake walk!

Lots of snakes on path now - take care.

This trail was absolutely gorgeous and everything I needed today! It had light to moderate traffic with so many beautiful green lush sites every corner you turned! I would go back in a heartbeat!

Great trail to walk with the family.... the only negative is the parking- it took us 40 minutes to park. But will still give the trail 5 stars!

Love this trail! Bummer you can’t loop the lake with the dog. Would love to explore more! Very active wildlife, very entertaining walk!

Hiked the Lake Trail and also Gainer Ridge in early February on one of the rare snows in Nashville. The Lake and Gainer Ridge trails were quite muddy but by no means terrible. One just has to watch your footing to avoid some of the muck. Hiked it in the early morning when snow was still falling and it was a gorgeous hike! The Lake Trail is flat the whole way and an easy hike but the Gainer Ridge trail is rated as strenuous and while the climb does get a bit steep, it is quite manageable and not that long of an ascent. The snow was great throughout the park and I saw some deer, ducks and lots of birds. I took some video footage of the hike, feel free to check it out on YouTube: https://youtu.be/p7qfdCcQVJo The Lake Trail loops around the lake and takes one on the paved road that is now closed to traffic (Otter Creek Road) and is very pedestrian friendly. Dogs, strollers, bikes or trail running is not allowed on the dirt trails, which is a bit of a bummer, but is allowed on the paved road that goes along the lake. Along the Lake Trail and up on Gainer Ridge, keep an eye out for owls as one can frequently hear and see barred owls in the area!

The trail shown on AllTrails is not quite correct. It bypasses a part of the South Lake Trail that goes back into the forest after following the paved road. If you follow all the signs for the trail, it's actually 2.8 miles.
