I've been on this trail several times and never been disappointed. I usually do the paved lake trail from the visitor center to the trail, and the nature is simply beautiful. Nowhere else in Nashville can you clearly see such biodiversity.

My husband and I did this loop and the south lake trail today less than two hours. Very nice. Bring walking poles and knee support if you have knee issues. Parking is limited btw.

Signs got me lost so I had to use the map got lost three times but it was a pretty challenging run with the inclines and loose rocks

easy trail, actually whole family enjoyed it. First trail I have been on and seen wild life. saw two large owls,a fawn six deer, several turkeys all on one trip and they did not seem frightened they all got close to get a look at us. highly recommend you walk it if you enjoy wildlife.

Nice trail. It was crowded but not uncomfortable and plenty of space to walk. Saw Turkey’s, an owl, and a deer on our outing. Will go again.

Great loop. WiFi available during the hike. Start in the West parking lot - start walking up the paved road. When the lake comes in to view, look for a right entrance into the woods. Stay right. The loop should take you about 19 minutes to get to the next trail crossing. For an extra workout - touch the sign and retrace the path that was just climbed.

I really enjoyed this Park. I was lucky enough to see a doe up close , turtles, a chipmunk and wild turkeys. The hike was beautiful and challenging in some areas, but I was carrying a heavy load due to training for the AT. I am from Florida and can’t wait to come back to visit .

I love all the nature in the back yard of our beautiful city!!

I love all the nature right here in the back yard of our amazing city!!

dogs allowed on otter while on leash, not allowed on actual hike.
beautiful place, only bummer was how many people were there with their trash and kinda ruining it for. otherwise great little place hidden within the city

I thought it was beautiful, will definitely return

Ganier is a great shaded hike. Very rocky trail in some parts. Good workout if you are able to walk quickly up the ridge. Saw deer and turkeys today.

This will easily become one of our favorites! Good elevation changes. Good views. One very challenging section, but most is fairly easy.

Excellent hike. Good elevation changes. We saw a snake, accidentally stepped on a lizard’s tail and saw it break loose, lots of squirrels and chipmunks, of course. It was a solid 20 degrees cooler under the shade of the trees on this trail than it was elsewhere. 8&9 year old kids managed this one easily, but it was a little scary for their mom as they wanted to run downhill with large drop offs on one side of them. No such worry for adults. Just know if you’re taking kids you’ll want to be sure they’ll listen when you tell them to slow down.

Nice shorter hike! Begins with quite a climb, but of course going back is all downhill. It took us half the time to get back. We saw a baby rabbit, several interesting bugs, and plants we hadn’t encountered before. LOTS of ticks this time of year. At the top of the trail we took a rest (hiking with two kids the rest was necessary) We discovered 4 lone star ticks- two on my son and two on me during that rest. Not yet latched on, thankfully. Once we were aware of them we realized they were on the ground and all over the vegetation at the top. Be prepared with bug spray and long pants.

Very nicely designed, maintained and it has lots of parking and bathrooms. The red hike is legit when it says difficult. short and sweet. The trails connect in different areas so you can really customize it to fit what you want. Will definitely be going back.

Great trail to spend an hour on after a day of work.

One of my favorite trails at Radnor Lake! Love the views of the lake through the trees.

Perfect setting walking around the lake. Bird and animal sounds the whole way. The second half of the hike follows a paved road that takes you out of the beautiful wooded environment. Very easy hiking. Went on an 80 degree sunny day so the path was dry.

Red trail + blue loop is about 4 miles. Good elevation changes. The only part I didn’t enjoy was the back stretch that is mostly old farmland that is now just grass fields. While pretty not my mo for hiking. Wide trails make for good running if that’s your thing.

All types of level trails from easy to moderate. All tails are nicely marked and manicured. Very peaceful and beautiful even though it was quite busy. I would definitely go again!

Really nice trail for moderate elevations during a walk that doesn’t take a lot of time. I recommend it!

Beautiful sunset hike. The wild turkey calls on the walk made extra amazing!

Really love this walk any time of year.

Easily my favorite park and trail in Nashville

Decent elevation change. A lot of streams crossing over the path. Great wooded getaway in the middle of the city! It was pretty muddy the day we went. Only drawback was that a portion of the trail backs up to a subdivision and you can see the houses. There is a way to cut off that section of the trail, but I didnt realize that until later.

What a sweet spot! Amazing lake views and so many trails you can choose from. Dogs aren’t allowed on the trial but they are allowed on Otter Road which is just as beautiful. :) Perfect for an afternoon walk.
