We loved this trail and the view were spectacular.

Hiked this a few times but last one was in July. Rigorous hike up the loop but so much fun. Love squeezing through the chimney. The views at the top are incredible! Plan to go again this fall and camp.

Awesome hike! Went up Loop and down Brook trail. Did some exploring at the top near West Peak. Loop definitely has a steep ascent - I wouldn’t recommend it for dogs, children, or inexperienced hikers. For three athletic people it took us about 4 hours.

Excellent easy to moderate hike. 360-degree views from fire tower during peak autumn are stunning.

we took blueberry trail up. much longer and more difficult than was expected. with elevation to blueberry hill and then decent and climb back up to tower. not much of view unless you climb tower, then beautiful.took tower trail back. lots of rocks. All in all we enjoyed it and would go again.

Boundary trail is a great trail

Best hike I’ve done so far this summer! Definitely worth the hard rating. There were lots of rocks to scramble over and many views along the way. I had so much fun doing this trail. The first 3/4 of a mile is relatively flat and then it turns into a rock climb. It levels out after a bit with gorgeous views of the peak. After that the trail goes straight up again. Close to the top you reach a spot that looks like you have to climb sheer rock face but there is a crevice to scramble through with iron rungs inside. Difficult for a shorter person like me to maneuver but doable! We hiked up to the west peak first (much less busy) and then went to the lower of the two. The views at the top are unreal and not too far from the lower peak the pond is great to cool down in (albeit a little crowded). The one con for me was the road - beware if you have two wheel drive - the road is dirt approaching the trailhead and very steep in some spots. If it had been wet at all, my car wouldn’t have made it. If you plan to come down the Brook Trail (which I'd suggest), I’d recommend parking by the Brook Trail and walking the 1.5 miles to the Loop trailhead first. I'll be back for sure! 10/10

Accurately rated as easy, though there are a few steep points where old pups or people with weak knees might struggle. Beautiful lookout points. The whole loop-de-loop that AllTrails lays out here took us just under two hours, including short stops to take in the views.

hiked this trail with my 3 kids (ages 8-14yrs). we went up the Eagle Scout trail and the Nature Loop trail and came down the Ledges trail, it was a pretty easy hike and my kids loved the stone tower. it was a bit cloudy when we went but it still had great views. a hike i would recommend for really any age or skill level.

After spending so many summers here growing up, and my kids being fifth generation to love Weld, I finally joined them for the second year in a row on this amazing climb. Take the Loop up and the Brook Trail down. Yes, it’s hard. But yes, it’s rewarding beyond belief. Don’t let your age or fitness level discourage you. Do it. Push yourself. The timing is never right, you make it right. Know you can do it. Once at the top, savor it. Listen, feel the air and smell the freshest air ever. Pick sweet blueberries all the way down to Crater Lake and feel how cold the water is! The fish are mesmerizing. You’ll be sore, your knees will ache on the way down, you may strain an ankle, but do it. Then you’re hooked.

I love Bradbury Mtn if you need to just be in a lil nature - it's super close to Portland. this specific trail is very winding and easy: great for older dogs and kiddos. view at the top is just of stretches of trees, so don't expect any wild views. however there is a beautiful rock cliff off to the left side to sun nap on!

Wonderful, Actually did the Brook Trail instead of the loop. Still very peaceful first thing in the morning. It got busy in the afternoon.

It was shady witch was nice. the tower is high!! we walked it in 89 minutes.

Great trail! Easy to find and plenty of parking. The trails are well marked and the views were beautiful!

great views, good exercise.

Great hike! Feels a bit longer on the loop trail on the way up. Brought my parents and my dog—not sure it was suitable for either of them. Went down brook trail. May try another way up next time, my dog still isn’t looking me in the eyes after I had to pick her up by her backpack...awesome hike, awesome views. Saw a frog, toad, snake and fish. Not many people which I like!

Awesome hike. The top of the loop trail is pretty intense but so worth it.
Views are spectacular from the top.

Amazing hike. Did the ledge trail around to the tower. Total of 5 miles. Great family fun hike.

Good sandwiches at the local deli nearby.

An easy short hike with a great view at the end.

We started the trail by following the Eagle Scout trail. There was a few steep spots and lots of big rocks to climb over but the view from the summit was worth is. We followed the loop down to the road back to the parking lot. They do ask for a $3 donation to park

Awesome! Had two young kids with me and they loved it! Especially once we got to the top and saw the stone watch tower; will definitely be doing it again :)

This was a stunning hike heading up the mountain trail and down Brook. We nearly lost our way at the chimney because the blue markers become difficult to find. Just keep heading up and you’ll find your way.
Difficult is an accurate description; you’ll find yourself huffing and puffing as you climb up all of the rocks to make it to the summit. But boy was it worth it!
Brook had far too many people on it, and was overcrowded for my taste. But the pond you walk by is quite lovely!

Tricky and rocky hike for sure! Wouldn't recommend going during/right after rain storms, or bringing small kids. The views are breathtaking and the pond at the top is incredible. 10/10 will do again.

Went up Brook trail and down Loop trail. Perfect weather on a mild July day. We were originally planning on doing an out and back on the Brook trail but after reaching the pond a group with small kids said we should check out the Loop trail. Boy were they right! Very cool experience climbing through the chimney using the iron rungs. Many near vertical sections at the top end of the trail. Channel your inner mountain goat! Not for the faint of heart. Beautiful views on the way down. The descent took quite awhile. Most folks come up Loop and descend Brook. However, no matter which direction you travel Loop trail is a challenge. Not sure I would attempt this climb if it were raining. If the weather is warm make sure you bring your bathing suit and take a dip in the pond at the top!

went there last summer and am headed back again. cool little hike.

This hike starts out by walking through a field of beautiful wild flowers. Once you pass through the tree line the trail steadily gets steeper and steeper. Once you get to the second viewpoint and take in the scenery the hike levels out but doesn’t really lead to anything

Went today with my husband, two kids (11 and 13 year olds) and our dog. We as a family go multiple times a summer to these trails. Love this hike. Wonderful day, hot at the top but so worth it.

Great hike with 9 year old, 6 year old, and dog. Took the Boys Chase Loop up to the summit. Awesome payoffs along the way for such a reasonable hike. Would recommend it to anyone with kids.
