Nice even, easy black path. Great for bike riding with little ones. It was a great trail to teach my daughter how to ride and stay out of the way of others. Access to the creek, makes for a lot of fun. Wear bug spray if you go to the creek!

I love these trails, but all of the reviewers are correct that it is poorly marked. that being said if you're willing to invest a few weeks or months learning the trail system it is fantastic. If your an early morning weekday runner you may never see another runner hiker or mountain biker. I am lucky to have been able to trail run all over the country and this is by far one of my favorite places that I've ever run. Remember this isn't Colorado you're never truly lost but you may be late for work. So suck it up get lost and find your way back you'll be glad you did.

Great and challenging trail. I just wished it was marked better.

If your mountain biking it’s tough. If your hiking it can be challenging. I do mostly the sugar shack/lake side of the park. I do it after work and walk /run 4-6 miles and do between 78-118 floors according to the Fitbit. Multi use trail is marked with white square blazes and green arrows.2.5 miles. Other trails are a little more confusing For people i guess. Wooden signs at some intersections like stump junction can go unnoticed if your not looking for them they are higher up the tree trunk Than the blazes.
I don’t do the arboretum side. I don’t know how well it’s marked.

Flat. 1 mile loop. Perfect for training yourself to walk or run. Sometimes very busy with people and their kids and pets.

If you're looking for a nice paved walking trail I can't recommend this one enough. I've been coming here for years to get in a quick mile or two and the park is very pleasant - lots of nice trees and a gentle creek runs along one side of the path. I now come here with my disabled mother, as its one of the few places I found that isn't too strenuous for her (she can do the full mile loop now!). There's also a small gravel cut-across in case you want to add another quarter-mile to your walk (or cut it short if you're parked at the second parking area).

The trail can get somewhat busy on weekends, and mid-to-late afternoon, as a lot of people use it to get in an after-work or lunch break walk/run. But the path is plenty wide enough to allow for people to pass without issue. There are also men's and women's bathrooms located along the trail (during the warm-weather months) and a port-a-john that is available year-round. The main parking area has two handicapped spots as well with its own small paved walkway that leads onto the trail.

as a new hiker it was hard to keep to the trail. I keep trying to do the loop but always end up turning back.

I will definitely do this again but I can tell why almost every review says you'll get lost. It is maybe one of the worst blazed trail I have ever been and is the worst around the baseball fields. But I loved the hike and the challenging hills. When the elevation says it's going to go up just be ready to climb.

Fun hike but trail not marked well, so when your hiking keep your eyes out the trail markers or you’ll get on the wrong trail fast.

Very hard to follow correct trail. Poorly marked route. But great hiking otherwise.

Great trail, a variety of terrain to give you good exercise and keep it interesting. We walked 4hr 15 min but stopped and backtracked a few times. We had a hard time finding where to get on the trail, but we asked someone and they gave us direction, since we lost service on our phones. Once we started, we soon ended up off the trail, but at a higher elevation, so we then used the map provided on this site to guide us along the trail. I have to say we would have been lost without it, and even with it it was a challenge, due to the many trails throughout. Regardless, its a great hike and fun if you enjoy the challenge (and lots of jumps for mountain bikers), just make sure you have gps on or at least download a map. The entire time we saw only 3 mountain bikers and 2 or 3 hikers. Will be back when the leaves have fallen to enjoy the view of the lake.

Very challenging yet satisfying. Completed 6 miles at 45-floors elevation. Beautiful place, will return.

poorly blazed trails is an understatement.. you have markers for about 3/4 of a mile then your on your own, with trail split offs about every 15 minutes makes things extremely difficult and you feel lost most of the time.. all in all will definitely not be going back.

We did the whole loop in 3 hours. Count a half hour of that for lost time! And we were using GPS. The trail was ok and I'd rate it as somewhere between moderate and hard. This is probably the poorest blazed trail I've ever hiked and I see why people get lost. We won't go back

We hike Brady's run quite often and always enjoy it. There are several trails to choose from and they are all very well maintained.

Brady's Run is the park I grew up in. The trails are great for trail runs and feel deeper than they are.

This trail was fairly easy for us. It is very nicely groomed of debris making the hike/walk pleasant. You can make it shorter or longer by taking different routes. We went about 3.5 miles.

This park is great for building endurance and climbing, as well as some technical skills (log crossing, hairpin turns, short steep climbs). I didn't like it until moving made it the nearest option -- now, I love it. Getting to know it is important. If you're coming for a visit, stop by Snitger's Bicycle Store in Beaver for maps and directions -- it can be a little confusing out on your own.
