What a beautiful park to enjoy the great outdoors. Love the beautiful trees and lake views. A real bonus is the paved road for the walking path. Nice restrooms. Be mindful of weekends and the crowds. Parking can be a challenge.

It was a great place for a walk, however it wasn't what I was expecting from a state park - mostly my fault for not doing my research before driving up there. There's one main trail around the lake and a handful of little trails...More

We have been wanting to go here for quite a while. We went on a weekday and parking in the lot was difficult. We took the short lake view trail and it was lovely. I had hoped to see some wildlife but we did not,...More

Stopped here for a quick scenic walk around 10am Sunday (about 1.5hrs). My husband and I walked around the Lake (lake trail and otter creek rd) and it was super easy and enjoyable. We aren't used to seeing the rich fall colors and this trail...More

Haven’t been here since I moved away from Nashville 10 years ago. It is still great. Certainly draws a crowd on a beautiful weekend morning. The hike to the top of the ridge is great. Just enough for some good exercise.

We wanted a break during our vacation, and thought we would go for a walk somewhere, and found Radnor Lake. We were able to get there fairly early before the rush, so we were able to make the most out of it. We had no...More

Great to visit for a walk or jog in nature around the lake. Trails of different difficulties starting from easy up to difficult. Parking can be hard to find on days with nice weather.

We go to this awesome state park to walk our dog Midnight! It’s right near our neighborhood! There are a lot of people walking pets around the lake. Everyone keeps their dogs leashed. Very picturesque with great nature views. They have many wooded trails also...More

You cannot drive through the park. It is a hiking trail only park. Even bikes and jogging are not allowed. There is an old road that goes through part of the park, but once again it is for walkers only.
