Great hiking trails - well maintained. Some areas of loose rock, so watch your footing. Small parking lot so plan accordingly. Saw lots of deer, owls, box turtles, snapping turtles.

Really pretty woods and lake, a bit of history near the dam. Free entry. Only trail maps are at the east and west parking lot entries. From ridge, couldn't really see through the trees, but glad we hiked it anyway. Good find!

Every time we get back to Nashville, Radnor Lake State Park is on our agenda... well marked hiking trails, views of the lake, wildlife populate the area... parking is limited, but with patients you won't wait long... must see...

Radnor saves urban dwellers and visitors from the closed-in feeling and traffic you might get from being in the city. It's a country getaway right in the midst of all that ---- a beautiful place to stretch your legs, any day.

Having been to Nashville once before, we wanted to explore some areas outside of the city. We headed out in the morning, thinking we were early, but found the parking lot at the visitor center to be almost full. We headed out for the Ganier...More

Take the time to walk completely around the lake...it's an easy hike and beautiful elixir for spiritual and physical well being.
