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 for biking. A good few families, dogs and runners, but not overly crowded. Some good steep hills, slow and long inclines, with time to rest in between. Will do again!

Nice community trail. Not a lot of privacy but not excessively crowded either. I wouldn’t make it a point to go here, but if you love in the area it’s a decent little escape. Recording is for entire system, not just one trail. It’s all easily done in a morning.

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.

Wide dirt path that zigzags up the side of a large hill. Had a solitary deer waiting at the top. Would need to come back at wintertime to appreciate the views. Too many trees to really appreciate it. Great spot for the dogs. Mildly trafficked.

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!

This was a very scenic hike for approx 3/4th of the trail. The remainder took you by the road. There was a lot of foot traffic but in a good way. We saw lots of wildlife and multiple deer.

Good quick 2 miles. Heavy traffic.

ok, views we're limited

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.

Nice in the fall but know you may encounter more traffic when weather is nice. Some areas you hear quite a bit of “city sounds”-that and people loudly talking/yelling did detract from the peaceful solitude I enjoy when hiking. Ample parking. Nice loops between Black, Blue, Green and Red trails (4.2mi if you don’t do outer blue/green). Some wildlife in the quieter areas (shhh people! You might actually see some beautiful creatures). But if needing some miles on a trail and you live nearby, it is nice.

Great for cardio. Did enjoy seeing a handsome buck on my way back to the trailhead and watching some chipmunks play.

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

Great trail with tons of signage and mile markers. Some sections are rocky but nothing too serious. Awesome views and not too crowded. A lot of parking for those wanting to get in and out with no trouble. Great for kids.

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.
