The Hiking Trails At Radnor Lake

It has been far too long since I’ve updated the blog.  Remember all those posts about how the market was hot and now is the time to list your home?  Well, you certainly listened… and listed!  My team has seen a huge uptake in listings and sales, so we’ve been spending most of our time on marketing, designing and writing brochures and flyers to represent your home and help it sell fast.  It’s definitely cut into my blogging time, but it’s also proof that many of you new listees need ideas of where to go and what to do when I gently dislodge you for a showing!  Especially, if you’re relocating outside of Middle Tennessee, you need to take advantage of all this gorgeous area has to offer.

I have a bit of spring fever, too, so this post promotes an outdoor excursion to one of Nashville’s loveliest natural destinations.  Lace up your hiking boots, grab a camera and plan a day at Radnor Lake.  My very favorite thing about this nature preserve is the extensive hiking trails that weave along the shore line with six miles of trails ranging from easy to strenuous.  You’ll hardly know you’re getting a workout, though, because you’ll be so distracted by the beauty that surrounds you.

Hiking the trails takes some time as you stop to observe the incredible flora and fauna that call Middle Tennessee home.  Don’t move too fast or you might miss some incredible finds, like this collection of heart shaped rocks that hikers have left nestled in the base of a tree.  It made my heart sing (pun, fully intended) that visitors knew to leave the rocks for all to enjoy!  Perhaps you’ll find your own to add.

Radnor Lake is a Class II Natural Area, so that means that protection of its natural resources is the highest priority.  For that reason, picnics, dog walking, jogging and biking are not allowed on the trails.  You can, however, jog, bike, and dog walk on the roads around Radnor and still enjoy the incredible views.  The Radnor Lake staff has some incredible programs for all ages, so do a bit of research before you head off to Radnor.  It will be well worth your time!
