Beautiful lake view, had different trails from easy to difficult. There was more people than I would have liked but I see why, great little hike.

I loved this trail! As a flatlander from the upper Midwest it was challenging but reasonable. It was also very well marked which is a bonus as I’m totally unfamiliar with the area. I highly recommend for a quick trail run.

Great trail and very well kept. Lots of wildlife. It was a pretty easy walk so it’s a nice trail to tackle with friends and family. Get here early because the parking lot and trail fills up quick!

Great trail. Lots of wildlife.

I combined the South Cove Trail with parts of the South Lake Trail. As a beginner hiker, this was the most difficult hike I have attempted yet due to the steep elevation climbs, but this hike may have been the most rewarding. There is much to admire here in terms of wildlife. I saw chipmunks near the trail, and a deer crossed my path just 10 feet in front of me. There have been some safety concerns at Radnor with the recent attempted assault of a woman on the Ganier Ridge Loop Trail, but I came across another hiker who frequents the park who says she still feels very safe on the trails which made me feel better.

Excellent trail. Very well marked, well maintained, wide, rocky.... nice moderate stretches. I truly enjoyed it.

Easy but lovely. Great way to spend an hour this morning.

Smith park has some rugged trails, seriously steep climbs and a great view . An excellent convenient park for a spirited workout. Great views at the top. Very quiet and peaceful overall.

It’s a nice trail for training but nothing to see at the top of the hill.

Quite possibly my favorite trails. Decently challenging, not over crowded, lots of nature.

enjoyed it tremendously

If your looking for something easy with a lot of great scenery this is your place.

Came in the evening and did the blue trail. Really nice hike! Ended up getting darker than expected and had to pull out my flashlight through the canopy for the last 1/3. Even so the trail is well marked and maintained. Will definitely be coming back to try the other trails.

Despite the tag and reviews stating otherwise you CANNOT run this trail. there are multiple posted placards which forbid running. this is sad because it's very runnable and quite fun.

That said, I still ran it.

I’ve never been disappointed with my time on this trail. It can get busy and parking is difficult @ times. Don’t let it scare you; be patient - it’s worth the wait!

I’ve been coming here since I was a kid 28 years now this is the nicest park there is. Always a ton of wildlife out I’m glad they have the rules they have there it keeps things nice. Parking is difficult if you go on the weekends but besides that no complaints.

Great exercise in a hardwood forest terrain. The trails at Radnor are jewels that require continued public support. We love hiking there. Combined South Cove with Garnier today while training for upcoming Utah trip.

This trail has strict rules. No running very little view of the lake the first half. So many people was just very disappointed. The park was nice just limited. Won’t go back

Short and intense. Basically all incline with 2 short level ground spots. Want cardio, don't have all day? This is your spot. Nice scenery all the way through, mostly tree canopy covered for sunburn prone folks. Ends in a beautiful hilltop clearing with covered benches on the perimeter.

This is a really fun trail with some nice scenery and a few challenging spots broken up by some relaxing strolls. Great trail if you have a dog that requires lots of exercise, my Pyrenees Husky mix is tuckered out after this trail.

My local favorite! Every part is beautiful and only about 1-2 tough inclines if you do the blue trail backwards

Really well kept trail system that's nice for trail runs without having to travel far. I ended up weaving through the different trails here for a ~8mile run, and there were some good climbs (specifically the red trail).

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.

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.

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.
