Get Outta Town!
After you’ve enjoyed some live music and the best southern food that Nashville has to offer, escape into the wilderness. Literally, go take a hike. On the edge of the city, Radnor Lake State Park features six hiking trails and mad views of fall foliage. Enjoy 1,332 acres filled with wildflowers, mink, vines, and birds of prey. If you’re a birder, you’re in luck: beginning in November, you’ll be able to see wintering waterfowl. If you want to learn more about the animals, head over to the aviary education center.
During the day, your hiking options range from a .2 mile jaunt along the mulch Valve House Trail, to the paved 1.1 Otter Creek Road path, to the difficult 1.6 mile, all natural Ganier Ridge Trail. If you’re more of a night owl, attend an astronomy night hike. What better way to cap off a vacation than with a walk under the stars?
