Nice, easy hike for all fitness levels. Little work, with a big reward. Great place for a picnic.

Nice falls. Would like to see them up close sometime.

I made the mistake of confusing this with Little Bradley Falls but it ended up being a great outing. I had my seven year old daughter and eight year old bulldog with me and even as tenacious as they both are, trying to reach the falls was too dangerous. We enjoyed the well worn path, playing along the river and the wildflowers in the first part of the trail. Several species of butterflies were all around as well.

The stream and small falls about half way there was fun but, getting on the overlook for Bradley Falls was dangerous and getting to the bottom of the falls was a major trick.

First Trail with my 10 y/o daughter. Great trail. Not too difficult and you cross over a creek early on. I recommend taking your shoes off and wade through.

The actual trail we followed for Bradley Creek is different than the trails other hikers have associated with this trail. The track we followed for the actual trail, although a scenic walk in the woods along a creek, about 3/4 in encounters several newer No Trespassing and Beware of Dog signs and what looks like a homeless persons campsite. It then promptly ends at a newer gravel road; no waterfall. A little anti-climactic to say the least. Our assumption is that most people are following the other numerous trails to either Little Bradley or Big Bradley Falls and associating it with Bradley Creek. Be sure to know which one you are hiking.

nice fairly easy, large trees crossing trail in a couple of spots, some large rocks from construction or erosion control make one area more difficult especially when wet.

Nice and easy trail off of Holbert Cove Road. Good for dogs and even young children (although there is a tricky stream crossing).Hiked this trail during summer camps at Camp Palmetto. Brings back some of the best memories in my life.
