What we’ll do

Wanna escape from Broadway and get your heart pumping? We'll explore three to five miles of pristine hiking trails at Radnor Lake, a welcomed oasis within Nashville city limits just seven miles south of downtown. Our easy to moderate hike will take us along the lake for optimum wildlife spotting. This hike will be good exercise but this is not a sprint. We'll be stopping frequently for wildlife…

Where you'll be

Meet at Visitor Center bike rack. Restrooms are inside the Center. We'll begin hiking around the picturesque lake, across to marshy areas where deer & waterfowl feed, then down Otter Creek Rd. We'll span the earthen dam, talk about its construction, & head down to creek level to visit the historic valve house. Last, cross the spillway bridge & hike back to visitor center. Majority of the trails are shaded, mulched paths; short areas are pavement.
