Henry Hollow Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Beaman Park is the setting for the Henry Hollow Trail, a first rate spring wildflower destination. If you visited this park once a week starting in late March, you would see new wildflowers--including spring beauties, trillium, phlox, trout lily, toothwort, shooting stars, Jacob's ladder, dwarf crested iris, and more--blooming every trip. Summer and fall bring their share of flowers, too.

This path is the gem of Beaman Park. It shows off the high and the low of this northwest Nashville preserve that has finally been opened to the public. Start along clear Henry Creek and ascend a deeply cut hollow full of wildflowers and other moisture-loving species. The path then heads to the oak-covered ridgetops before returning to the low end of Henry Hollow near Little Marrowbone Creek."

Nice loop with decent views, but nothing special. The trails for Radnor Lake start with Lake Trail and then break off into Garnier Ridge on the North and South Lake/South Cove on the South. This allows you to make the hike as simple or strenuous as you'd like (See the map on their site: http://www.radnorlake.org/lake_map.html)

Radnor calls the Garnier Ridge strenuous, but it was moderate at best. There's one section where you walk up some steep man-made stairs, other than that, it's pretty leisurely.

A little crowded on the Lake Trail, but once you get to Garnier Ridge it thins out.
