Radnor Lake is a 1,200-acre natural area located in Davidson County in the Overton Hills approximately eight miles south of downtown Nashville. This natural area is an outlier of the Western Highland Rim and has some of the highest ridges in the Central Basin. These ridges can exceed 1,200 feet in elevation and supports mountain laurel, various species of blueberry, sourwood, oaks and hickories commonly found on the Highland Rim. Its lower slopes and hollows support beech, sugar maple, tulip poplar, and shagbark hickory with spicebush, coralberry, and elderberry in the shrub layer.
