There is good elevation changes at the beginning on Ganier Ridge but after that, it levels out quite a lot and isn’t horribly difficult. Great for a leisurely hike! Please note that dogs and running are only allowed on the paved roads.

HikingGreat!

Very limited parking but the trail was beautiful. We traced the water for much of hike before it started to rain. Great places for nature photos with top-of-hill outlooks!

Hiking

There are several versions of this hike in Radnor Lake Park, each slightly different. When traveling counterclockwise, this route takes you (from the Eastern Lot) down Otter Creek Road, then turns right onto Radnor Lake Trail. Once you reach the northwest edge of the lake, take the spillway bridge and walk the gravel road until it intersects with Otter Creek Road. Walk a short distance until you see a break in the trees on your right; take the South Lake Trail until it reconnects with Otter Creek Road again. Turn right, then continue up the hill to the East Lot.

Five stars for wildlife and just to get some mileage. Half of it is lakeside and then the other half is through the woods. Not difficult, but pretty. Lots of animals, which is why we keep coming back to Radnor. We see something new every visit. *still waiting to see the otters though

Wooded trail with a small lake...more of a pond. They have signs posted to not bring your dog or even run/jog on the trail. Middle TN is kind of a tough place for hiking in general, but this place is a bit overrated, even for a local.

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.

On our first hike we saw turkey, owls, snapping turtles, chipmunks, a muskrat, and a heron! We could have finished in about 45 minutes but were distracted from all the sights.

Running

This morning was my third time running this route and I was told that it’s illegal to run on the trail and could result in a very large fine... just a heads up for anyone considering. It’s gorgeous though, especially in the morning before it gets crowded!

First to Review

We saw so much wildlife on our morning hike. A Barred owl, family of turkeys, many deer, blue heron. One deer came right out of the woods close enough I could have touched her.
