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

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.

Enjoyed the various trails leading to the summit but the out of state fee was a bit steep at $6 per person. The park had clean facilities and a great map of the trails!
