Ganier Ridge Loop

Ganier Ridge Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This loop explores the high and the low of Radnor Lake State Natural Area. Depart from the less-used east side of the park, then climb steeply up the Ganier Ridge Trail into the highest hills in Nashville. Just as you get accustomed to the oak forest up there, the loop drops down to a rich hollow and reaches the north shore of Radnor Lake, a haven for waterfowl. Finish your hike in the flat alongside Radnor Lake.

This hike climbs to about as high as you can get in the Nashville basin. There is a water spigot and restroom facilities at the trailhead. The trail surface is mostly dirt and rocks."

From Trails.com team 4/8/18 - Chris P., thank you so much for the feedback, and you are correct, it seems the photos and reviews belong to the Wilderness Trail from the same guidebook and not to Ganier Ridge Loop. We will make this correction asap - thanks again!

I live in the Nashville area and signed up on Trails.com to simply mention that many of the reviews and the photos I see are NOT connected to the Ganier Ridge Trail in Radnor Lake State Park. I have hiked this trail many times and it is only about 2.9 miles total and just under 400 feet elevation gain. So, some wires are getting crossed on this website and I wanted to alert any readers (and hikers) to this fact. The reason I looked into this article was because I was amazed that the Ganier Ridge Trail made it into the Top 25 Trails in the U.S. on this site. So please be aware that there is a lot of information being posted here in the reviews and photos that has nothing to do with the real Ganier Ridge Trail in Radnor Lake State Park near Nashville.
