A well-used Hill offering a number of easy, short paths to a summit that enables visitors to look out over an expanse of trees. The $4 per person entrance charge is a bit excessive for what is offered. Great for kids and elderly hikers. Nothing...More

The trail is, like, 2 tenths-of-a-mile: a short shady hike through the woods until you get to a rocky outcrop with a pretty view. What's not to love? This is a great mountain for a beginning hiker, or anyone looking for a short easy-to-moderate hike....More

Very helpful staff! Well maintained park. We went there with bouldering in mind, and although it took us a while to find them, we did! They're almost pure crystal though, very painful... Still, a gorgeous afternoon.

My son and I decided to take a short hike up Bradbury to view some foliage and we were not disappointed. Easy access to the park. Hike was a little tough due to wet leaves but worth it once we got to the top.

The trails are all a bit anticlimactic and I prefer more scenic hikes. But this would be a great spot for beginners or those who just want to explore nature for a bit.

Bradbury mountain is a wonderful spot for a short hike and beautiful views. On a clear day one can see for miles. The short hikes are fairly well marked but I must admit I have gotten lost on one occasion! The hike is not strenuous...More
