Radnor Lake State Park

Hiking

Radnor Lake is day-use only and is protected as a Class II Natural Area, so the trails are strictly used for hiking and wildlife observation. Trails are off limits to pets, jogging, and bicycles.

Radnor Lake has some of the highest hills in the Nashville Basin. Wildlife is amazingly abundant. One can observe geese, herons, coots, and other birds as well as many species of salamanders, frogs, snakes, lizards, turtles, and mammals. Hundreds of species of wildflowers, mosses, fungi, ferns, and other lesser plants as well as trees, shrubs, and vines add to the natural ecological diversity of the area.
