South Radnor Lake Loop

South Radnor Lake Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike winds through lush north-facing woods on the southern side of Radnor Lake State Park. The forest is rich with wildflowers in spring, is about as cool as the Middle Tennessee outdoors can get in summer, and offers a mosaic of color in fall. In winter, parts of this loop receive very little sun. Don’t let the loop’s short distance belie its challenging climbs, though."

Depending upon your outdoor goal this trail can be many things to many folks. If you love outdoors/nature and want a causal walk to enjoy trees or nature while walking an easy 2 mile walk on a paved trail then this trail is a 10+. It is a great trail for families to walk and do some minor exploring and because it is paved it is even great for the families with strollers. If you are into fitness and want a place to go off the normal green ways and malls to do your intense walking this trail is an excellent alternative for you. If you are looking for a place to bike, mountain bike or intense workouts and challenges then this trail isn't really for those types of activity. The trail reaches very hot and humid levels in the summer months despite the fact that there is mostly shade. This is a better time to do early morning and late afternoon/evening activities n the trail. One final note here is during times the area is receiving heavy rain fall the lake and trails flood easily and closure is certain.

Excellent paved walking trail. Takes about an hour to complete. Plenty of wild game, turkeys,squirrels, ducks. Not real scenic in the fall and winter.

This trail is flat, uneventful, and slightly dull. To be fair, the lake was down considerably and there was no greenery when I was on the trail. This paved trail is ideal for jogging, but provides no challenge as a hike. If you are bored and it's close, I would do it. I wouldn't make a special trip for it. They do, however, rent canoes to go on the lake. That would probably be more fun than the trail.
