Pictured above: Natural Areas Director Roger McCoy assisting Park Manager Steve Ward on February 2nd, 2018 with marking of large red oak trees. This is to ensure their protection during parking lot construction on Harris 3 road frontage along Franklin Road.
Thanks to the efforts of Friends of Radnor Lake and the State of Tennessee working together, the last remaining acreage of the Harris Ridge Trail Project has been secured as of December 2017. The park staff is currently working on future trail plans, including the development of a much needed parking area off of Franklin Road for the future trail connecting Franklin Road to Otter Creek Road. Stay tuned for upcoming hikes to highlight this acquisition and also future volunteer opportunities as we clear the trail route of invasive-exotic plants in the coming months.
