Set in the luscious hills of Davidson County, this tourist hot spot is as close as you can get to natural wilderness. Go on a hiking trail in the forest area or catch the wildlife in its most natural form. If you're lucky, you may be able to observe some of the rarest species of wild birds here. Don't forget to see some of the most exotic floral wonders the park features. The sprawling 85-acre (34.398-hectare) lake provides the perfect centerpiece for this tourist haven, which is at its best in autumn. They have a strict no-dogs, no-jogging and no-biking policy, though it is allowed on Otter Creek Road. Radnor Lake State Natural Area is open to the public everyday starting at 6am.

Such a lovely spot for a hike. You can enjoy a flat, easy path around the lake, or take a more challenging trail in the surrounding hills. It's often busy but everyone is so happy to be enjoying nature. We especially love observing the wildlife. Great place to take our kids.

Radnor Lake is a great taste of the outdoors in Nashville! On my most recent visit, I saw a ton of animals and enjoyed an easy 3 mile hike!

Beautiful area. There's many trails for you to choose from ranging from some that are easy to some that are difficult. There is even a trail that is handicap accessible. Defiantly recommend.

Awesome place to go for a short hike I just moved to Nashville and learned about Radnor Lake from enjoynashville.com. It is just outside of downtown, yet it has hundreds of acres, a lake and all sorts of trails.

Too many restrictions to actually have fun. – We visited Radnor Lake yesterday to scout it out and see if it were a nice place to come back and hike with our dog or mountain bike today. We took a lunch with us to enjoy at the park as well and found that there are no picnic tables available because picnics are not allowed at the park. We also read today online that you cannot jog, bike or have leashed pets on the trails to prevent upsetting the ecosystem and scaring the wildlife. It sounds to me a lot like the affluent residents around Radnor Lake have made the lake quite snooty and not a place to really enjoy an outing while having fun. Maybe they should restrict small children from the park that may scream when they see a spider as this too may ultimately upset the fragile ecosystem there as well as cause the earth to tilt further on its axis and maybe lead to greater green house gases causing global warming. Have fun there if you dare.

Hikers and nature lovers find sanctuary at this placid park. – In Short Located in the Overton Hills in Davidson County, this peaceful park offers diverse habitats and plenty of hiking. Birds like geese, herons and coots are abundant in the region, as well as frogs, lizards, turtles and other animals. Wild flowers can also be seen here, depending on the season. The 85-acre lake, for which the area was named, is popular for photographs and nature studies.

Wild, in every manor of the word – Love to run and hike in this beautiful forest. Watch out for the cracks in the pavement though, they can be brutal.
